TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 10 (UPI) -- Local police in Tallahassee have issued a dangerous-person alert after a man carrying a handgun was spotted on the campus of Tallahassee Community College.

According to police, the potentially-armed suspect is wearing a dark hoodie, blue jean shorts and plaid boers. He is in his early twenties with braided hair and metallic teeth.

Witnesses said they saw two men running and it appeared one was chasing the other.

A faculty member told local television station WTXL that a suspect has been arrested.

Police issued a campus-wide lockdown at roughly 10:40 a.m. before lifting it shortly after 1 p.m.

The lockdown did not affect nearby Florida State University.
