Central Connecticut State University has issued a campus emergency alert asking all students to seek shelter, lock doors and close their windows amid a report of a possible gunman.

Police tell NBC that a man possibly armed with a gun was reported entering a residential hall at CCSU. That sighting has yet to be confirmed.

One student told NBC they saw a man walking toward a residential building carrying a gun, Japanese-style sword, kneepads, body armor, paintball goggles and multiple clips or magazines.
