Public safety emergency in effect on Saginaw Valley State campus

Saginaw Valley State University has closed its campus for the remainder of the week after issuing a public safety emergency.

Campus police issued the alert Thursday evening, requesting students stay away from the school.

A tweet from the school said the situation dealt with "an individual in distress" who was located in Science West, a campus building where classes are held.

In a follow-up tweet, SVSU requested students avoid Science West, Science East, Ryder Center, Pioneer Hall, and Zahnow Library.

News reports say the university has been quiet but SWAT teams have remained at the active scene. 

The university also said remote classes could continue as scheduled.
