Apparently there is a lockdown at Sul Ross. Man with a gun, I hear. Nothing else. Anyone know something?

The lockdown at Sul Ross State University has been lifted after a campus-wide search by law enforcement agencies, officials said.
"After a thorough building and room to room search, law enforcement officials have called the all clear for the Alpine Campus," Sul Ross officials said in an email. "Students, faculty and staff are released from lock-down. Classes and the university offices have been closed for the remainder of the day. Business will resume tomorrow as usual."

So, according to my inside sources, an old grey headed man walked into the Briscoe Admin building with a gun strapped to his back. A lockdown ensued, police called. The APD and the SRUPD searched the campus looking for this mysterious man but could not locate him.  After hours of a futile search, they finally reopened the campus.  Alpine PD is still on the search town wide. He still has not been found.
