(Newser) – One person is dead, police are hunting for a shooter, and a North Carolina college is on lockdown after a shooting this morning, report WRAL and Fox News. "This is not a drill. The entire campus is under lockdown," read a message posted on the Wayne Community College's website. Police are searching for a suspect described as a 5-foot-11-inch white male with a goatee and a tattoo over his left eye, reports WRAL; he's reportedly carrying a long rifle. The shooting, which reportedly took place in the school's library, also shuttered a nearby elementary school. The college's president says all school personnel have been evacuated, notes Fox.
