The campus of Virginia Tech was put on lockdown Thursday morning after three children attending summer camps at the university reported seeing a man with a gun covered by a cloth.

At a news conference Thursday, police confirmed that no one was in custody.

Authorities are now combing the campus, which was the scene of a horrifying massacre in April, 2007.

The suspect is described as being a white man, 6 ft tall with light brown hair, according to  a university administrator who spoke to CNN.

The man was said to be wearing a blue and white striped shirt, brown sandals and did not have glasses or facial hair.

“We have a lot of kids who come to these specialized camps,” the administrator told CNN.

On April 16, 2007, Virginia Tech was the scene of a horrifying school massacre. In two separate attacks, approximately two hours apart, a gunman, Seung-Hui Cho, killed 32 people and wounded 25 others before committing suicide.

The massacre is the deadliest shooting incident by a single gunman in U.S. history.
