Police at NCCU Stop Armed Gunman on Campus

Campus police at North Carolina Central University in Durham shot and killed a man armed with a shotgun in an incident that prompted a three-hour lockdown at the school, university officials said on Tuesday.

The lockdown of all campus buildings and dormitories began at 10:15 p.m. EDT on Monday (0215 GMT Tuesday) after campus authorities learned that a man sought by police for a break-in and armed robbery in Durham had fled by public bus toward the school, the university said in a statement.

Campus Police Chief Tim Bellamy told Reuters that officers approached a man at the perimeter of the campus who fit the description of the suspect and ordered him to show his hands.
