DURHAM, N.C - Police say a gunman has been shot and killed near the campus of North Carolina Central University in Durham.
Durham police said they had tracked a suspect thought to be armed onto the campus late Monday, prompting officials to lock down the school.
They say the man was later found in the woods around 1 a.m. Tuesday.
The university's police chief, Tim Bellamy, said officers fired after the man challenged them with a gun. The gunman was not a student.
The State Bureau of Investigation has taken charge of the case.
