Virginia Tech on lockdown after reports of gunman on campus

VIRGINIA (WOIO) - Virginia Tech officials say the campus is on lockdown after reports of a gunman on campus.

University Spokesman Larry Hincker and Virginia Tech Police Chief Wendell Flinchum told reporters that three campers on the campus reported seeing a man with what they believed to have been a concealed gun.

Hincker and Flinchum say that local police forces have been combing the campus for the man, but have not found anyone matching the description.

There are several camps being held at the campus this summer, and all participants have been told to stay indoors until further notice.
