Jackson State University went on lockdown after an active shooter was reported on campus.

That lockdown has been lifted. School officials said there is no longer a threat of an active shooter on campus.

However, Jackson Police Department is investigating a shooting on campus on Lynch Street where a man was wounded just after 11 a.m. They haven’t provided any information on a motive or suspect.

WLBT crews at the scene saw someone being loaded into an ambulance. The extent of their injuries is unclear.

School officials said the shooter is in a black Honda Accord with license plate MAC-0214. There’s no description of that person available at this time.
