CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Reports of shots fired on a North Carolina university campus Tuesday prompted a lockdown and chaotic scenes in North Carolina’s largest city.

UNC Charlotte issued a campus lockdown late Tuesday afternoon, saying that shots had been fired.

“Shots reported near kennedy. Run, Hide, Fight. Secure yourself immediately,” the university said in an alert, referring to the school’s Kennedy building on campus.

Aerial shots from local television news outlets showed police officers running toward a building, while another view showed students running on a campus sidewalk.

The university later reported that law enforcement officers were sweeping campus buildings.

It was not immediately clear whether anyone had been shot or whether a suspect was in custody. School officials couldn’t be reached for immediate comment Tuesday evening.
