Tuesday - 9/24/2013, 7:00am  ET

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Police say a gunman has been shot and killed near the campus of North Carolina Central University in Durham.

Durham police said they had tracked a suspect thought to be armed onto the campus late Monday, prompting officials to lock down the school about 10:15 p.m.

Police said the man was subsequently found in some woods around 1 a.m. Tuesday.

The university's police chief, Tim Bellamy, said the man challenged officers with a gun and they fired. The man's name has not been released.

Police say the gunman was not a student.

The campus lockdown was lifted around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday.

The State Bureau of Investigation has taken charge of the case.
