TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State University students were asked to shelter in place after authorities issued an alert about a “dangerous or life-threatening situation” on campus, according to a tweet from the school.

The initial tweet, which was posted shortly before noon Monday, did not provide much information but was followed by an additional post about a potentially armed man on the university’s campus.

Nearly an hour after FSU issued the alert about the possibly armed man, school officials said the situation was under control but advised that those in the area should remain vigilant.

Authorities have not said why they were looking for the man or if he was taken into custody.

It’s unclear how many students and faculty members were on campus at the time due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The school is open but is limiting on-campus activity, according to its website.
