UNC Police confirmed that an “armed and dangerous” person was located on the campus of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Wednesday afternoon.

WRAL reported the university advised students and staff to stay inside, close all windows and doors, and to stay inside until further notice.

Police were told to be on the lookout for a suspect involved in an incident at Alpine Bagel at the UNC Student Union. A person was seen with a firearm near that location. People were seen evacuating the student union.

The boyfriend of an employee at Alpine Bagel Cafe entered the cafe, waved around a gun and left. Police did not provide a description of the man. No shots were fired, a source told WRAL.

This comes less than two weeks after a professor was shot and killed at Caudill Labs on campus. The shooter in that crime was charged with first-degree murder on August 29.

The lockdown was lifted just after 2 PM and UNC Police announced all normal activities could resume.
