OVERLAND Park Police have lifted a lockdown at a northeast Kansas community college after checking a report of a suspicious woman carrying a long gun.

Johnson County Community College police and officers from the city of Overland Park began a room-to-room search of several buildings after the report around 4 p.m. Thursday. Campus police Officer Dan Robles said students were released from buildings as the searches ended.

Robles said police had not found anyone fitting the description of suspicious, pony-tailed woman carrying a camouflage-print bag and a long gun, possibly a shotgun.

The college tweeted shortly after 7 p.m. that there was no longer a "viable threat'' and said classes would resume Friday.
