The lockdown at Vance-Granville Community College is over, according to campus police.
The lockdown began at 11:30 a.m. Monday and was over at 12:25 p.m., the school said.
"The lockdown was initiated based on the presence of an individual on campus who was believed to be armed," said Vice President of Employee and Public Relations Stacey Carter-Coley. "All day classes at VGCC Main Campus are canceled for the rest of the day [Nov. 25]. Students in evening classes are advised to await further instructions."
President Dr. Stelfanie Williams said, "Our employees followed our procedures in place to secure the campus. We appreciate the support of local law enforcement agencies, our employees, our students and their parents during this time."
