York Technical College announced that it had closed the Rock Hill campus at noon Friday due to what police said was a “verbal road rage incident that ended on campus.”
Rock Hill Police gave the all clear around 1:30 p.m. Friday, saying that all parties involved had been interviewed and there were no arrests or charges.
The incident that prompted the college’s closure was initially reported as a “road rage incident” that began off campus, according to Capt. Mark Bollinger, a Rock Hill Police spokesman.
The incident apparently resuled in a verbal dispute in a parking lot on campus.

The alleged victim and the suspect both attend classes at York Tech, Bollinger said. There was a delay in reporting the alleged incident because they both went to class immediately after it happened.
One of the parties involved reported possibly seeing a gun, Bollinger said. However, no weapon was recovered, he said.
The college had announced earlier on Twitter and on Facebook that it would close at noon Friday due to an “unconfirmed but potentially serious” situation that was being investigated. All students and employees were asked to leave the campus, the announcement said.
