All Clear At North Carolina A&T After Report Of Gunman

University officials have given the "all clear" at North Carolina A&T after a gunman was reported on campus.

Classes were given the okay to resume. WXII, the local NBC station is reporting no weapon was found.

Last year, the university in Greensboro was locked down after a report of a gunman on campus which might have been mistaken for a man with an umbrella. The same thing happened at ECU in November 2011.

North Carolina A&T State University is evacuating several buildings and advising other students to take shelter after a report of a man with a rifle on campus.

An alert posted on the university's home page and Twitter account shortly after 10 a.m. Monday advised of the campus-wide lockdown after the man was spotted in a campus building. According to a university spokeswoman and a string of Twitter messages from the university's account, campus police received a report of an armed gunman in the General Classroom Building. The advisory says police are sweeping and evacuating the building.

N.C. A&T is a historically black university with about 9,000 undergraduate students and a more than 700-acre campus east of downtown Greensboro.
