— Parts of North Carolina A&T University were on lockdown for about three hours Monday morning as campus police investigated a report of a gunman on campus.

A campus spokeswoman said someone called police about 10 a.m., saying that a man with a rifle was in the general classroom building. Some areas were ordered to lock down and shelter in place while others were evacuated.

Shortly after noon, the university posted to its Twitter account that classes were canceled until 2 p.m.

The all-clear was given just before 1 p.m., but officials did not immediately say whether a threat was found.
