A Dallas-area community college was briefly on lockdown after a report that a suicidal male student with a gun entered a bathroom somewhere on campus.
Brookhaven College president Richard McCrary said the lockdown was lifted Monday after campus police searched every bathroom and didn't find anyone with a gun.
McCrary said campus police were confident the area was secure. He said someone initially called Dallas police and identified the student, and Dallas officers didn't find anyone at the student's home.
McCrary said the school sent out emergency alerts and told students walking on campus to get inside.
The incident comes a week after a University of Texas student shot himself to death in a campus library after opening fire on campus.
