NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) -- -

Officials say one person is in custody following the sighting of an armed man who prompted a lockdown at Central Connecticut State University.
 
New Britain Mayor Timothy O'Brien says the suspect is in the custody of campus police.
 
Sightings of a man armed with a sword and possibly a gun on Monday morning set off a schoolwide lockdown and warnings for students to stay away from windows.
 
A university spokeswoman says all students have been safely evacuated from a residential building where police were searching for the possible gunman. Spokeswoman Janice Palmer said Monday that the students who had been inside James Hall were moved to another building for questioning by police.
 
Classes were canceled for the rest of the day. Palmer said the order to stay inside remains in place.
