One person has been taken into custody, WSOC reports. "Monitor email and UNCC homepage", the tweet advised. The suspect was not immediately identified by police, which set up a media staging area near the school.

Police "believe there is no other threat on campus", according to a tweet by Morgan Fogarty, an anchor and reporter for WCCB in Charlotte.

Video posted to twitter by Jordan Pearce, a student, showed people fleeing a campus library as police sprinted toward the building.
