Earlier this morning, a man wearing army fatigues and carrying a firearm was spotted near the architecture building on the campus of University of Texas at Arlington, according to Fox News. Police have told students to stay away from the building.
Dallas Morning News is reporting that the reported gun might be something more “benign,” and that campus police are “with the man spotted in the Architecture Building.”
The school’s twitter account is still urging students who are not in the architecture building to “resume normal operations.”
