The University of Hartford has given the all clear after ordering students to shelter in place Thursday night.
Students received an emergency text message to seek immediate shelter and lock the doors.
Hartford Police tell NBC Connecticut that a car accident at Sigourney Street & Albany Avenue triggered police activity in the area that later spilled onto the campus. Police say there was no imminent threat and the shelter in place was a precautionary measure.
Most undergraduate students have already left campus for summer vacation.
Graduation is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.
Police said they caught a suspect off-campus and he has been charged with evading responsibility.
