Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The campus at MSUM went into lockdown overnight, but

it turned out to be a lesson in preparation.

Moorhead Police and Campus Security scrambled after getting a call about a man with a weapon walking across the heart of campus around 1:30 this morning.

It was in the area of the Science Building, Hagen Hall. When authorities approached the man, it turned out he was the janitor, who was wearing a tool belt and a radio, not a gun.

David Wahlberg- MSUM Spokesperson: "But it is important that if people see something looks suspicious they are not sure, call authorities, chance are it will nothing, but so be it."

MSUM President Edna Szymanski says she is happy the passerby called in the report, and that campus security and Moorhead Police handled it the way they did.
