IUPUI says to 'resume normal routine but remain vigilant' after reported armed robbery near downtown canal

IUPUI said there was an attempted armed robbery with a handgun on the downtown canal near Indiana Avenue and West Street.

INDIANAPOLIS — IUPUI issued a warning to its students to take shelter due to a man on campus with a gun.

The university tweeted Monday night that there was an attempted armed robbery with a handgun on the downtown canal near Indiana Avenue and West Street.

IUPUI students were told to "take safe shelter" and stay away from the area as police looked for the armed robbery suspect, who IUPUI said was reported on campus. 

Shortly after midnight, a little more than an hour after the initial alert, the university tweeted that the threat was no longer imminent and that people on campus could resume their normal activities, while remaining vigilant. 

IUPUI said the investigation was ongoing, but made no mention on whether a suspect was located.
