DURHAM, N.C. -- The lockdown at North Carolina Central University (NCCU) has been lifted after they reported a possible shooter on campus.

The shooting happened near a classroom building and two residence halls at the intersection of Concord and Lawson Streets. Police said that location is also near a public street where a city bus stop is located. 

NCCU's police chief Tim Bellamy initially identified the suspect as Crandall Ingram. However, police now say Ingram is not a suspect, but a person of interest.

Ingram is a former NCCU student who is banned from campus. 

No one was wounded in the gunfire, Bellamy said.

Bellamy told WFMY News 2, Crandall is wanted on charges of Trespassing, Delaying and Obstructing a Law Enforcement Officer who recently saw him on campus.

The investigation is ongoing and it hit a slight snag after officers learned the victim had given them some misleading information, Bellamy said. The alleged shooter and the victim know each other, but Bellamy said they don't know a motive for the shooting.

Tweets from the school's official Twitter account just after 2:30 p.m. advised students to stay indoors. The NCCULife account tweeted shortly after 3 p.m., "#NCCU is all clear!"

NCCU campus police shot and killed an armed man on campus at the end of September. Officials said he was not a student.
