Florida State University (FSU) has lifted a shelter-in-place order from earlier this afternoon, when police were pursuing a potentially armed suspect.

They first tweeted the emergency alert out at 11:45 a.m., stating "Dangerous Situation! A dangerous or life threatening situation exists on the FSU Campus. Seek shelter now."

They elaborated on the tweet about 45 minutes later, stating that officers are in pursuit of a male subject wearing shorts and shirts, traveling on foot in the direction of Stadium Drive fro Jackson Bluff Road. He is potentially armed with a handgun.

However, by 1:13 p.m., FSU stated that the situation was under control and that normal activities could resume. However, law enforcement would remain on campus for the immediate future.
