BOULDER, Colo. — Several people were taken into custody following a report of shots fired near a residential hall on the University of Colorado Boulder campus early Sunday morning. No injuries were reported.

Around 3 a.m., CU Boulder police received a noise complaint stemming from a party at Weber Hall located in the Williams Village Neighborhood.

Police said as officers were breaking up the large gathering, shots were fired outside in the parking lot.

Officers identified the vehicle the gunshots came from, pulled the car over, and made several arrests, according to CU Boulder police.

Four people were charged in the incident, including three people who were minors, according to CU Boulder police.

"The suspects are not affiliated with the university," CU Boulder police said.

During their investigation, CU police learned the suspects were using an air pistol to shoot BBs, which makes a similar sound to gunshots.

The investigation is ongoing and CU Boulder police ask anyone with information to call the department at 303-492-6666.
