Shortly before 10 o’clock Monday night, police responded to the basketball courts near the Harper-Schramm-Smith dorm complex where a fight had broken out. Police believe at least two of the people involved in the fight were armed.
UNL Police Department Sergeant Christy Buetler says by the time police arrived, the fight had broken up.
The lockdown was lifted after UNL police determined the safety of students was no longer threatened.
The investigation continues.
A week ago, UNL police took a student into custody who carried a BB gun on campus.
