ARLINGTON, Tex. — Students and staff at the University of Texas at Arlington were temporarily urged late Wednesday morning to “shelter in place” amid reports of ” a suspicious white male with a gun,” the school said.

“This is not an active shooting situation on campus,” school spokeswoman Kristin Sullivan said.

A few minutes later, a notice was posted saying the school could “resume normal operations” except at the Architecture Building.

“Final schedules should continue as planned,” the school said.
