The alert issued by UNC and law enforcement said there was “an armed and dangerous person on or near campus.”

Just after 2 p.m. Alert Carolina issued another update saying that the campus was on lockdown for “the active assailant situation.”

At 2:30 p.m., Alert Carolina confirmed the suspect remained at large.

UNC Police released a photo of a person of interest in the case, asking people to contact them if they knew where this person was located.
