Standoff Over

As has been widely reported in the local media, an armed man entered building space leased by NC State early Wednesday afternoon and ordered employees to leave the building at gunpoint.

Once the employees left the building, the man began a standoff with Raleigh police and was eventually taken into custody.

The incident occurred at an off-campus site where the university leases a portion of the building. Fourteen people work at the site; six were in the building when the armed man entered. All six left safely and all 14 have been accounted for.
