The Kent State University campus lockdown has been lifted campus wide.

A Kent State spokesperson says the suspect has been arrested.

Another press conference from the university is expected Thursday morning.

No one was injured, according to a spokesman, and police were looking for a black male wearing basketball shorts and carrying a silver handgun.

The shot was fired near Bowman Hall.
