COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M University no longer has a lockdown on its main campus after a report of a suspected gunman on campus turned out to be a person with a replica weapon.
The university's emergency notification system, called "Code Maroon," says there is no danger and people should resume normal activity on campus.
University spokesman Lane Stephenson had said a campus bus driver was on his route around 4 p.m. Thursday when he reported seeing an individual carrying a weapon, possibly a rifle, near the student union.
But about 90 minutes later, A&M officials determined the person was actually someone carrying a replica weapon.
