University of New Haven: Weapons recovered, 1 in custody

NEW HAVEN — A lockdown was lifted yesterday afternoon at the University of New Haven, hours after a report of a man near campus with what appeared to be a rifle.

The school and police said earlier Tuesday that a person was taken into custody and weapons were recovered. No one was injured.

After the report came in just before 1 p.m., the university urged students and staff to stay inside, and several police officers responded to the West Haven school.

The university lifted the lockdown around 5:30 p.m. after police searched the main campus. Restrictions on the north and south campuses had been lifted earlier after searches there. Evening classes were canceled.

The report of an armed man marked the third scare at a Connecticut university in the last several weeks.
