A man suspected of carrying a gun on Middle Georgia College’s campus has been taken into custody.

The college was placed on lockdown Monday morning after a student reported seeing a man with a gun. Authorities combed the campus room by room.

College officials say the man is not a student on the campus, which is 120 miles south of Atlanta. No shots were fired.

College president Mary Ellen Wilson says students are back in class and the lockdown was lifted around noon.
