GREENEVILLE, TN -

Tusculum College, in Greeneville, Tennessee, was locked down Tuesday night after school officials say a student reportedly had a gun and ran from police.

The school sent out alerts to students around 10:45 Tuesday night alerting students.  Students were instructed to go inside, lock their doors and call campus safety if they see the student authorities are searching for.

The college Director of Communications says the lockdown was lifted just before 11:30, and the student in question is in police custody.
