WVU Police issued an all clear early Saturday after about a 90-minute search for a reported gunman.

An emergency alert advising people to stay indoors was issued shortly after midnight when a person was spotted with a gun in the North High Street area. The gun, which was a BB gun, was turned into Morgantown Police, police said. MPD cited the owner of the BB gun for violation of a city ordinance against possession of an airgun within city limits, University Police said.

Police say the BB gun’s owner was not the person who took the gun from the house at 700 North High St. earlier and that Morgantown Police were still trying to locate him early Saturday after the all-clear was given.
