Man suspected of being armed at ISU wasn’t

NORMAL – An erroneous report of a man with a gun led to a lockdown at Illinois State University and the arrest of a man attempting to board a train to Chicago.

The Tuesday incident began when the man allegedly accosted a female student.

ISU chief of staff Jay Groves says the woman’s boyfriend called campus police to report the incident and a campuswide alert was issued, prompting the lockdown of two laboratory schools and restricting access to residence and dining halls.

The man was spotted by Normal police at the Amtrak station and was taken into custody.

No gun was found on the man.

The Pantagraph in Bloomington reported an interview of the man and student determined the report of the man being armed was unfounded.

No charges have been filed.
