Report of armed person causes lockdown at Texas State


The J.C. Kellam (JCK) building on the Texas State campus was locked down briefly Friday after the University Police Department (UPD) received a report of an armed individual in the building.

“There was a report to UPD that a possibly armed individual was seen in JCK,” said Texas State spokesman Jamye Blaschke. “Police investigated and found no such evidence.”

The building was briefly locked down as a precaution while the search was conducted, then resumed normal operation.
