Lockdown Lifted at Western Connecticut State University

DANBURY, Conn. (AP/WBZ-AM) - A lockdown at Western Connecticut State University at Danbury Schools have been lifted  as police investigated an unconfirmed report of a person on campus with a gun.

In a tweet issued Monday, the Connecticut State Police said there is no active shooter and no shots have been fired.

Police say the report was a false alarm.

State police say troopers, Danbury and WCSU police were on the scene at White Hall earlier Monday afternoon.

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton had tweeted there are "reports of an individual entering a building with a long rifle."

Boughton says Danbury Public Schools and Henry Abbott Technical High School in Danbury were locked during the investigation.
