ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. -- Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s South Campus in Kannapolis was placed under lockdown around 9:35 a.m. Friday morning.

The lockdown was the result of reports that an individual had a handgun in the parking lot of the South Campus.

The College quickly locked the campus down to conduct the investigation. Additionally, the College immediately sent out a campus alert message to students, faculty and staff via email, text and phone.

The South Campus location remained locked down for approximately one hour until Kannapolis Police Department (KPD) secured the campus and completed their on-site campus investigation.

The college administration issued an “all clear” for south campus at 10:20 a.m. There are no reports of anyone being harmed in this situation. Students, faculty and staff have been told to resume their normal Friday activities.

The Kannapolis Police Department is continuing an investigation of this incident. No other Rowan-Cabarrus campuses are affected. All other locations will conduct normal class schedules. For further information, please contact the Kannapolis Police Department or Dusty Saine, Rowan-Cabarrus site director.
