Classes Resume at NC A&T Following Lockdown

Authorities at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University in Greensboro say classes will resume at 2pm ET. Earlier today, officials placed the school on lock down after a man with a rifle was spotted walking around on campus. The initial statement distributed via the school’s website read:  “A black male has been seen carrying a rifle on campus. The University is on lockdown. Everyone should stay inside, close and lock your doors and windows.”

However, the school officials have updated the site with a message saying that the ban has been lifted.
