A lockdown imposed at Texas Christian University on Tuesday morning was lifted after police located and arrested a suspect, a campus bus driver who allegedly shot at another bus driver during an argument and bumped into the other driver when leaving the scene.

The two bus drivers operated campus shuttle buses and got into an argument on Tuesday morning around 7 a.m. local time, with one of the drivers shooting at the other driver and missing, News On 6 reported.

The argument and gunshot occurred near the TCU campus at the north end of the football stadium, The Washington Post reported. As the shooter was leaving in his bus, he bumped into the other employee. No significant injuries were reported.

A campuswide alert was issued for TCU students and staff as police were notified and searched for the suspect. "Armed person on campus," the alert read, NBC5 reported. "Seek safe shelter immediately, More updates to follow as available."

Police located the suspect just before 8 a.m. and arrested him, the Post reported. The lockdown was then lifted just after 8 a.m., but many morning classes had already been canceled by then, NBC reported. Afternoon classes were held as normal.

A nearby school in the Fort Worth Independent School District was also placed on lockdown because of the shooting, NBC reported. The university policy says that only police officers can have a gun on campus.

Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald said that both men are being questioned by police, NBC reported.
