No gunman found in MIT campus, say police

Boston:  Police in Massachusetts say a call reporting a gunman on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus was unfounded and that there is no threat to public safety.

Police said Saturday that officers searched for a man reported to be carrying a long rifle and wearing body armor and found nothing.

A spokeswoman for the university says the school also called off a campus-wide lockdown.
