University of Michigan-Dearborn was locked down for a short period of time late Monday night due to a man believed to have a handgun, according to ClickOnDetroit.

The man, from Roseville, was distraught at the scene and threatening to commit suicide, according to WXYZ. Reports say a negotiator later spoke with the man.

Students were first instructed via Emergency Alert at 11:56 p.m. Monday night to stay inside all buildings while the situation was being rectified.

While the incident was ongoing, heavy police presence was reported on the campus in front of University Center near Mardigian Library.

The situation was resolved around 12:21 a.m. Tuesday, according to a second alert, which specified it was safe for students to leave campus buildings.

The man is in custody and being taken to a psychiatric evaluation, according to ClickOn.
