GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina A&T State University has been put on lockdown after reports of a man with a rifle on the Greensboro school’s campus.

The university updated its website Friday morning to advise that students should stay inside and lock their doors and windows.

The school has more than 10,000 students and more than 2,000 employees.

NC A&T spokeswoman Nettie Rowland says no shots have been fired and police have a description of a suspect. Rowland says the entire campus is included in the lockdown, including scores of Guilford County high school students who attend an on- campus high school focused on math, science and technology.

Greensboro Police Spokeswoman Susan Danielson said the city’s officers are aiding campus police.
