DENVER — Students and staff at Regis University were told to shelter in place after reports of an armed man being seen not far from the campus on Monday night, the school said.
The Denver Police Department said the man was seen walking in a field with a gun near West 55th Avenue and Julian Street, about three blocks north of the campus.
The man was described as being 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds. He was seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and shoes.
Police said the man was not deemed a direct threat to the university community.
Regis University said students and faculty should report to class as normal this morning. This comes after a shelter-in-place was issued last night when armed man was spotted near campus, walking in a field with a gun: https://t.co/C0OOyklzxs pic.twitter.com/JsvwtBheDV
