SANFORD, Fla. – Seminole State College’s Sanford/Lake Mary campus reopened Monday morning after a lockdown placed when deputies received a report of a “suspicious person armed on campus,” according to the sheriff’s office.
The college tweeted at 11:30 a.m., “Law enforcement has instructed us to lock down.” The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said they received a report of someone with a possible weapon on campus. The lockdown was lifted at 12:53 p.m.
A spokesperson with Seminole State College said a student reported to a school resource deputy a suspicious person with “what the student described as a gun in the pocket of a hoodie.” The school said Seminole County deputies responded to the campus along with Lake Mary and Sanford police officers.
After a search, the subject was located. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said the subject was not armed though.
