Police lifted a lockdown at Howard University after receiving a report of a shooting. Police found no signs of a gunman on the campus.

The Washington DC Police Department had said that, while it was investigating reports of a shooter, nothing so far had been officially confirmed. Nonetheless, the school’s administrative building was evacuated as a precautionary measure.

Howard University said that it called police when it received an anonymous call warning them of a potential shooter on campus. The university also said that police were going through every building going door to door.

Howard, a historically black university, made headlines last week when its football team’s cheerleaders knelt during the national anthem in solidarity with other athletes who have taken a knee during sporting events to protest against police violence against black communities.

Howard is also celebrating its 150th anniversary and homecoming this week.

Neville twice asked King about Trump's Ukraine scandal, and both times he evaded the question by saying that Congress does not have a right to know the details of Trump's conversations with foreign leaders.

On her third attempt, Neville got to the point by noting Trump's alleged actions are "a problem."

"We don’t know that it’s true, we hope it’s not true," the Fox News host said of the allegations against Trump. "But if there is a possibility that our president used his office to put pressure on a foreign government -- president-elect -- to dig into his possible, potential political opponent, then that’s a problem."
