School officials put the Virginia Tech campus on lockdown after a person was repotred with a gun at Dietrik hall.
Authorities issued a lockdown on Thursday at the campus of Virginia Tech, site of a 2007 mass shooting that killed 32 people, the school said.
An alert on the school’s website said: “Person with a gun reported near Dietrick (a campus building). Stay inside. Secure doors. Emergency personnel responding. Call 911 for help.”
A subsequent crime alert said three juveniles attending a camp on campus reported seeing a white man who appeared to have a gun covered with a cloth.
