CHESTERTOWN, Md. (AP) - Washington College in Maryland says its shelter in place recommendation will continue throughout the night after a missing student went home to Pennsylvania to get a gun.

College spokesman Michael O’Connor says the parents of a sophomore notified the school early Monday that the student returned home outside Philadelphia and retrieved a firearm.

The college says Chestertown police currently consider the student a missing person. The school is in Chestertown on the state’s Eastern Shore.

The school said on its website that it plans to resume normal operations Tuesday morning.

The private school on a 112-acre campus was founded in 1782. It has about 1,450 students.
