GADSDEN, Ala. (WIAT) — A situation has been cleared at Gadsden State Community College’s East Broad and Wallace Drive campuses following a notification from the school telling students to stay away.

In an email released by the college Thursday morning, the only details about what was happening was that there was a “fluid situation” going on at the campuses with the Gadsden Police Department. The department later confirmed that officers were chasing a suspect one block from the college and decided to put the school on lockdown.

The situation has now been cleared.
