CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Central Piedmont Community College’s Central campus has been given the all-clear after a person with multiple arrest warrants was spotted on campus Wednesday.

CPCC tweeted about a “shelter in place” advisory at 2:19 p.m. in reference to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police pursuit. No details were given at the time. CMPD later confirmed that officers spotted a car associated with a person wanted by police. There is no indication that the person with outstanding warrants was armed or posed a threat to the campus. 

CMPD said its officers were unable to find the suspect and take them into custody. After a thorough search of CPCC’s campus, the all-clear was given and people were allowed to leave buildings and resume normal activity.
