At least one shot was fired at the school’s Business and Aerospace Building around 11:30 a.m. One person was shot in the finger, police told ABC News Nashville affiliate WKRN-TV, but the injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

The identity of the gunman was not immediately made available by police, but initial reports described him as a black male wearing a tan hat and purple shirt. It is unclear whether the man is a student at the university. The original description of the shooter noted that he was wearing a backpack.

The school was placed on lockdown Monday while authorities combed the campus for the man responsible.
