Official: 1 dead in shooting at North Carolina college

GOLDSBORO, North Carolina (AP) -- An official says one person is dead and a North Carolina community college campus is on lockdown as authorities search for a man with a gun.

Kim Best, spokeswoman for the city of Goldsboro, says there is one victim in the campus shooting at Wayne County Community College. She says that person is dead but did not give any other details.

Best says the shooter is not in custody. She would not say whether the shooter was still on campus.

Wayne County assistant operations manager Daniel Wiggins says the 911 emergency dispatch service received a call about 8 a.m. of an active shooter on campus.

Authorities are searching the area for a white malel with a goatee and a tattoo over his eye. Wiggins says he doesn't know what type of firearm is involved.
