TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - University of South Florida police say one person is in custody after someone reported a person with a bomb and a gun near the library.
The agency has called in the Tampa Police bomb team to investigate the person's belongings. That happened about 90 minutes after they received an off-campus call about the possible gunman.
An alert posted on the school's Web site Monday afternoon said people on campus should stay inside and lock their doors while officers searched the area.
Police say they received more information about someone on a bus and were attempting to locate the person and secure the area.
