WASHINGTON (WJZ) — A big scare for a college in Washington, D.C.
American University was placed on lockdown Wednesday after receiving calls about a man with a gun.
Nearly two hours later, police said those reports were unfounded.
It turns out, someone actually saw the holster of an off-duty police officer.
No one was hurt.
The campus is now operating normally.
