Students and staff at Mississippi State University are safe after reports of an active shooter on campus Thursday morning.
The school's emergency alert information service sent out a message around 10:20 a.m. Starkville time saying: "Active shooter reported at Carpenter hall. Last seen in vicinity of Lee hall. Seek Safety immediately."
The school was placed on lockdown. Many shared tweets showing students and campus personnel huddled behind locked doors around campus.
"We looked out the window and saw a lot of students running, which was probably the scariest part," said Kaiti Blake, a WJTV meteorologist and Mississippi State student.
Authorities arrested a suspect about an hour later. They say no shots were fired and there were no injuries.
