MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Officials say Manchester Community College has been locked down as police investigate an unconfirmed report of a man with a gun.

WVIT-TV reported that a student told authorities she saw another student with what she believed to be a gun in his waistband.

The lockdown was ordered around 2 p.m. Wednesday and classes are canceled.

An alert was sent to students by text message, and the college's website urged students to stay off campus until further notice.

Additional information was not immediately available.
