FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - Campus life is back to normal at Fairmont State University, which was evacuated for about six hours because of what officials described as a potentially dangerous situation involving a student.
According to media reports, university police asked all students and employees to leave the main campus around noon Friday. Police said a student had threatened to harm himself and others and might be armed.
However, the 17-year-old was unarmed when he was taken into custody late Friday afternoon at Valley Falls State Park. Police did not release his name because he is a minor.
Some area elementary, middle and high schools also were locked down Friday as a precaution.
