MSU lockdown may have been sparked by moving students

(BOZEMAN)- Authorities are still on the lookout, but they say the report of men on the Montana State University campus with a rifle this morning might have been nothing more than students moving. 

The MSU campus, as well as surrounding schools, were locked down Tuesday morning when police received a report of two men spotted with a gun crossing 11th Street moving into the campus area. 

KBZK TV reports the first alert was sent out around 9 a.m. with students and faculty ordered to remain indoors while the area was searched. One man was stopped and questioned but released and the lockdown was lifted just before 11. 

Police say it appears the men may have been students who were moving the rifle along with other belongings.
