The American University concluded searches of all buildings on its Washington campus on Wednesday and deemed them secure, after reports of an armed intruder nearby.

The university thanked police and the community for their response and cooperation with the lockdown, as well as law enforcement for the search.

Reports of an armed intruder near the campus had earlier prompted the university to tell students to lock doors and stay away from windows and if outside to leave the campus immediately.
