Mississippi State: Campus gunman arrested, no one wounded

Authorities at Mississippi State University say they have arrested a person who reportedly was carrying a gun on campus and that no injuries have been reported.

MSU spokesman Sid Salter told The Associated Press in a phone interview Thursday that the person had been arrested. He declined to give any further information.

The university had issued an online alert shortly after 10 a.m. saying a gunman had been reported near Carpenter Hall, which houses MSU’s mechanical engineering department and overlooks the Drill Field at the heart of the 20,000-student university in Starkville. The gunman was later reported near Lee Hall, the university’s main administration building.

MSU issued an all-clear and said on Twitter that classes would resume at 2 p.m.

  1. I do not think it is fair to call him a gunman when he did not have a gun.
