WESTFIELD (CBS) – Westfield State University was placed on lockdown Monday afternoon while police investigated an unfounded report of a suspicious man on campus.

Massachusetts State Police said a suspect described as a white man with a trench coat, backpack, and possibly body armor was seen at the school.

A search began and people on campus were ordered to stay in place until further notice. The lockdown has since been lifted.

No further information is currently available.
