The University of North Carolina issued an Alert Carolina message just after 1 p.m., warning of an “armed and dangerous person on or near campus.”

The school is currently under lockdown as of 2 p.m., due to the “active assailant situation,” as reported by ABC 11.

The investigation is focused across the street from the Morehead-Patterson Bell Tower, along South Road near Caudill Labs.

All schools in the Chapel Hill – Carrboro area are in secure mode. All buses in the area have halted their routes. The UNC Board of Trustees’ special meeting and Faculty Executive Committee meeting are cancelled.
