INDIANAPOLIS – Police are searching a downtown Indianapolis college campus for a reported gunman.

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Bill Abston tells WISH-TV a female student reported seeing a man at around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday with a long gun and she ducked behind a car. The man was last seen near a nursing building.

Abston says the man is described as a 6-foot white man with a long brown coat.

Also locked down were Riley Hospital for Children on the campus and a nearby Crispus Attacks High School, a medical magnet school.

IU School of Medicine lab technician Kamakshi Sishtla says she hunkered down in a small, windowless equipment room. The building where she works is across the street from where the gunman was spotted.

Classes resumed Monday after spring break.
