GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- The lockdown at North Carolina A&T has been lifted after reports of a man with a rifle on the Greensboro school's campus.
 
The university updated its website Friday morning to advise that students should stay inside and close and lock their doors and windows.

School officials say the student was reportedly spotted in the area of the General Classroom Building.

He's described as a black male, approximately 5-foot-11, wearing a blue jacket, blue jeans, blue cap and white t-shirt.

No shots were fired.

A campus-wide search, as well as a search of surrounding areas are still underway.
 
The school has more than 10,000 students and more than 2,000 employees.
 
The university's office of public relations says it would release more information later.

Guilford County school officials have locked down eight nearby campuses as a precaution.

AirStar is on the scene.
