No further information was available.

ORIGINAL STORY

Kansas State students are being asked by K-State police this morning to “shelter in place” as they continue to search for a potentially armed suspect.

This is not an active shooter situation on the K-State campus. Rather, the suspect is believed to be connected to a series of armed robberies that occurred during the overnight hours in Manhattan.

According to the Kansas State Police Department, the suspect was last seen on the south side of campus, which has prompted a lockdown and forced the college to cancel classes on the Manhattan campus until further notice.

That lockdown has also extended to nearby Manhattan Christian College, while the Manhattan USD 383 school district has been placed on a lock-out, which means students can attend classes, but cannot leave the building.

K-State administration is constantly updating the situation on Twitter and we'll keep you updated as the situation continues to develop.
