State police say the University of Connecticut's Avery Point Campus is "under control" after the report of an armed man on campus triggered an evacuation late Monday.
A UConn spokeswoman says a despondent man threatened to harm himself and had crawled beneath a dock.
A local TV station reports that police negotiators talked with him and the standoff ended. There's no word on the man's condition.
Following the report of a gunman on campus, an emergency alert was posted on the school's website ordering an evacuation.
It's not known if the man has any connection to the university.
