JONESBORO, Ark. -- Arkansas State University says an armed man who drove onto campus is now in custody.

University spokesman Bill Smith says the man was taken into custody about an hour after the incident began. Earlier Thursday, the university was placed on lockdown after the man drove his truck onto the center of campus and displayed a weapon.

Smith says the campus remains on lockdown as authorities inspect the man's truck. No injuries have been reported.
