MANHATTAN, Kansas – A lockdown on the Kansas State University campus has been lifted and classes are scheduled to resume.

The lockdown was imposed early Friday after police received a report of a possible gunman on the campus.

After a building-by-building search, the university said in a statement that classes and all other activities would resume at 9:30 a.m. Friday.

Police spokesman Steve Logback says police received a report about 4 a.m. Friday of a man possibly carrying a weapon on the south side of the Manhattan campus.

Students were urged to stay indoors and students, faculty and staff were urged to stay away before the lockdown was lifted.

Police say armed robberies occurred near the campus shortly before the alert was issued.

No other details were immediately available.
