A group of students were seen jumping from windows at the University of North Carolina (UNC) on Monday in response to reports of a gunman on campus.
In a message Monday afternoon, UNC Police said that students and faculty should shelter in place because of an “armed, dangerous person on or near campus.”
Video emerged of students escaping a building by jumping from windows.
By late afternoon, police updated the status to “all-clear.”
