Two community college campuses secure after report of gunman

HICKORY, N.C. (AP) — Both campuses of a western North Carolina
community college are secure after a staff member reported seeing a
man walking through a parking lot with a handgun.

About 1,000 students are on the east campus of Catawba Valley
Community College in Hickory. That campus is secure, and police
evacuated the main campus, where about 5,000 students attend

The website of Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory says
both campuses are closed and that all classes were canceled for
Wednesday afternoon and evening.

School President Garrett Hinshaw tells the Hickory Daily Record
that it’s possible to get from east campus, where the gunman was
reported, to main campus via trails in the woods.

Authorities describe the suspect as a white man in his mid-30s.
