LAMONI, Iowa (AP) - Officials at a small private university in southern Iowa say a student is being questioned after the school was briefly on lockdown because of a campus threat.

Graceland University spokesman Kirk Bjorland says the threat was resolved after the student was taken into custody Tuesday without incident. He did not elaborate.

The school posted on its official Twitter page and Facebook page around 11 a.m. Tuesday that the campus was on lockdown because officials had received a report of an individual with a gun on campus. Officials later said there was no active shooter on campus but an active threat.

Bjorland said there is no additional information available about the circumstances of the campus threat.

Graceland University is located in Lamoni.
