VINCENNES, IN (WFIE) -
Security at Vincennes University in Knox County, IN say the campus lockdown has been lifted.

An alert went out at 12:39 a.m. (EDT) saying a gunman was on campus and police were on the scene.

A second alert went out at 1:12 a.m. (EDT) saying campus police were searching for a white male in his 30s with a beard wearing a dark cap and jacket. Police say they also think the suspect had what appeared to be a tattoo on his right neck area behind his ear.

A third alert went out at 3:40 a.m. (EDT) saying the lockdown had ended, campus buildings had been checked by police, and residence halls were open. 

The original complaint, campus police say, came from student housing at Habitat Apts. about a man impersonating a campus police officer.

Security says when officers arrived on scene, the suspect, who had a gun, escaped through an apartment window and ran down Red Skelton Blvd.

Campus police tell us no gun was fired and no one was hurt.

The investigation continues.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Vincennes Police at (812) 882-1630, callers can remain anonymous.
