A scare caused a lockdown on the University of Nebraska’s East Campus. It happened around 3 pm Thursday afternoon. Police searched the building after there was a report of a man with a gun. UNL Police Captain Carl Oestmann says the buildings were searched and contact was made with several people, but they did not find the person reported to be involved. The lockdown was lifted about an hour and a half later. Police reports say someone at the College of Dentistry called University police saying they saw a man enter the college with a silver handgun. Faculty, staff, students and visitors were reportedly “sheltering in place”, until the lockdown was lifted. Nearby Nebraska Weslyan University was also locked down.
