WASHINGTON — Police and school officials say the lockdown at American University's campus in the nation's capital has been lifted.

The campus in the city's northwest section went on lockdown just before 8 p.m. Wednesday following a report of a man with a gun.

Washington Police spokesman Officer Hugh Carew says the department received the report about 7:40 p.m and that officers searched the campus.

The university posted an all-clear on its website about 9:25 p.m., saying the campus could resume normal operations.
