DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Police at North Carolina Central University in Durham say a gunman has been shot and killed near the southeast part of the campus.

Durham police had tracked a suspect thought to be armed onto the campus late Monday, prompting officials to lock down the school about 10:15 p.m.

Police say the man was found in some woods around 1 a.m. Tuesday. Campus Police Chief Tim Bellamy said the man challenged officers with a gun and they fired.

The man’s name has not been released.

Police say the gunman was not a student.

The lockdown was lifted around 1:15 a.m.

The State Bureau of Investigation has taken over the case.

Classes in the School of Education are being relocated Tuesday.
