Penn State officials say university police have in custody a man who threatened to harm his children who are students, causing a lockdown of a campus residence hall.

They say police on campus got a call Sunday evening that a father in the Harrisburg area in a family dispute threatened to harm the students. They live in Hamilton Hall, a 550-student residence hall on the University Park campus. The school ordered a lockdown of the hall for four hours as they investigated.

The lockdown was over shortly after 9 p.m.

The university said the suspect has been taken into custody. He was not identified.

The school said police will continue to patrol campus into the night.
