ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Students and staff at Marymount University were briefly ordered to shelter in place after police received a report of a man with an object in his hand that might have been a gun.

Arlington County Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage said police received a report around 1 p.m. Monday of a man on campus carrying a dark object that might be a gun. Police searched the campus and issued an all-clear less than an hour later.

The university sent a notice on Twitter that police had received a report about a man on a campus parking lot.
