UC closes campus Wednesday

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The University of Cincinnati's Uptown and Medical campuses will shut down at 11 a.m. Wednesday ahead of an announcement about the deadly UC police shooting of Sam DuBose.

All classes at 11 a.m. and after that time are canceled. Campus offices will also shut down, according to the university.

"This decision is made with an abundance of caution in anticipation of today's announcement of the Hamilton County grand jury's decision regarding the July 19 officer-involved shooting of Samuel Dubose and the release of the officer's body camera video. We realize this is a challenging time for our university community," read a statement from UC Police Department.

The closing applies only to non-essential personnel. It does not involve the university's Blue Ash and Clermont campuses.
