BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech officials say police officers are searching campus buildings after three children reported seeing a man holding what looked like a gun.
The university said on its website Thursday afternoon that the search would be a long process as authorities combed through the buildings. A school spokesman says there are 150 major buildings on the campus.
Police had released a composite sketch of the person reported earlier in the day by three children attending a summer camp. They say there have been no further reports of someone with a gun.
Maddie Potter, a 19-year-old interior design major, says she was in a woodshop working on a class project when the alert was issued. She says school staff locked all the doors and turned the lights off in the building.
Meanwhile, nothing of note has happened at the University of Utah...
