GREENSBORO, N.C. —

North Carolina A&T State University has lifted a lockdown imposed after reports of a man with a rifle on campus.

The university updated its website Friday afternoon to advise students and staff that the lockdown was no longer in effect.

Prior to the lockdown being lifted, A&T spokeswoman Nettie Rowland said no shots had been fired and that police had a description of the suspect. Students had been told to stay inside and lock their doors and windows while city and campus police officers searched with anyone who may have had a gun.

The historically black college has more than 10,000 students and more than 2,000 employees. Rowland said it also hosts scores of Guilford County high school students who attend an on-campus high school focused on math, science and technology.
