An alert went out at 4 p.m. that someone wearing a shotgun and a gas mask was last seen at 24th and Guadalupe streets.
Five minutes later, UTPD sent out another message giving the all-clear, saying the man had been found and the weapon secured. The Austin American-Statesman reported police encountered him south of campus, at the corner San Jacinto Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard.
A police dispatcher said immediately afterward that the man had carried a training rifle, but she said no other details were available, including whether the man was a student.
Nerves went on edge on campus last month after a caller threatened campus with bombs in multiple buildings. The Forty Acres was evacuated for several hours as facilities were cleared of any danger, building by building.
