Students at Stevenson University in suburban Baltimore were told to take shelter Monday after the school reported an active shooter on the Owings Mills campus.

“Active shooter reported on Owings Mills Campus. Shelter in place until further notice,” the campus website said at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Baltimore County Police responded to a report of a person on the campus with a “long gun.” According to their Twitter page there is “no confirmation of an armed subject or shooting at this time.”

Witnesses told a local NBC affiliate that they saw two gunmen.

Police have recovered a rifle that was located inside a pickup truck that was legally parked on campus, WBAL-TV reported.

Authorities learned about the truck through a security video and a security guard who said he or she saw the suspect. The owner of the truck has been located and is being questioned by police, the station reported.

The campus remains on lockdown as the investigation continues.

Stevenson University is a private liberal arts college and university, located in the Greenspring Valley area of Baltimore County and home to about 4,000 students.
