GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Calvin College has lifted a lockdown of its Grand Rapids campus that was issued as police tracked a robbery suspect.

The school early Friday issued an emergency notification that the campus was in lockdown. Students were asked to seek a safe area and to secure themselves and others inside.

About an hour-and-a-half later, the school issued an all-clear and said that Grand Rapids police had tracked a robbery suspect across campus.
