Kean University was under partial lockdown Thursday morning after campus police received a report of a man with a gun.

Authorities say that shortly before 11 a.m., a call came in of a black male, approximately 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8, wearing a white Lakers jersey walking north on Green Lane toward Morris Avenue carrying what appeared to be a shotgun.

Campus police immediately locked down campus buildings in the vicinity, including Harwood Arena, Kean Hall, the Child Care Center and the Administration Building.

No persons were allowed to enter or exit those specific buildings during this lockdown.

The individual described was located by Union Township Police off campus and was not carrying a firearm. All campus lockdowns were lifted as of 11:40 a.m.
