Update: Ronnie Ward, public information office for the BGPD, said a robbery didn’t take place on College Street as initially reported in WKU alerts, nor was a gun present. 

Ward said the subjects involved were present in the house on College Street, but were told to leave and subsequently left once police were called. He said the residents of the home knew the subjects. 

“It really was a whole lot different than they thought it was,” he said. 

A subsequent WKU alert did not go out.
