NORTHRIDGE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Cal State Northridge has determined there is no longer a threat of a person bringing a firearm on campus.

The announcement comes a little more than an hour after ordering people to "immediately leave" campus due to a report of a person with a firearm coming to campus.

The campus is open and operational, according to police.

Earlier, police had told people if they are unable to leave the campus, they should shelter in place.

Police say there are no further updates at this time.

It is unclear if there was a verified threat of a person with a firearm or if it was false alarm.
