DEARBORN, MICH. (AP) - A Michigan community college has been locked down because of a gunman on campus.

A woman who answered the phone in the president’s office at Henry Ford Community College on Friday told The Associated Press that police have secured the area but there was a gunman at the Dearborn school. She declined to give her name.

Twelve-year-old Christian Plonka says he was in the college’s MacKenzie Fine Arts Center when he heard a gunshot. He and others participating in a theater program ran to the adjacent University of Michigan-Dearborn campus until police gave the all-clear.

Dearborn police and the campus security say they are dealing with an emergency and are unable to provide any information.

An on-campus news conference is planned for later Friday.
