WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (Reuters) - Police evacuated several buildings at North Carolina A&T State University on Monday and asked other people on the campus to stay in place after getting a call that a man was seen carrying a rifle in a classroom building, the school said.

Campus police were conducting a sweep of the building where the armed man was reportedly seen, according to alerts on the university's website and Twitter account.

The public university is located in Greensboro.
