UNC Police has confirmed that an “armed and dangerous” person has been located on the campus of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Police have been told to be on the lookout for a suspect involved in an incident at Alpine Bagel at the UNC Student Union. A person was seen with a firearm near that location. People were seen evacuating the student union.
As reported by WRAL, the university is advising students and staff to stay inside, close all windows and doors, and to stay inside until further notice.
People can use the American Red Cross Safe and Well list to communicate with families during the emergency. Campus police ask anyone seeing suspicious activity to call 911.
This comes less than two weeks after a professor was shot and killed at Caudill Labs on campus. The shooter in that crime was charged with first-degree murder on August 29.
