Story By Associated Press

WAUKESHA - UPDATE: Police have arrested the suspected gunman on Carroll University's campus in Waukesha.

The campus has been given the all clear following his arrest. More details as they become available. Earlier versions of the story are below.

A small university in southeastern Wisconsin is keeping students in its classrooms while police investigate a report of a man with a firearm.

Carroll University sent a text alert to students after the public safety office received a report of a man with a gun.

University public relations director Claire Beglinger says that two students called public safety officers to report a man with a ``long gun'' near the tennis courts on the northwest corner of the campus in Waukesha.

They described him as white and about 50 to 60 years old.

Beglinger says police have brought in tracking dogs to help with the investigation.

Carroll has about 3,500 students and is located about 30 miles west of Milwaukee.
