POSTED: 6:22 AM Nov 21 2012

ETSU was placed on lockdown Tuesday night after a domestic situation spilled onto campus.

Director of Media Relations Joe Smith tells us News 5 campus public safety received a tip that a suspect in an off-campus domestic situation might have been headed toward campus.    

We're told officials did not know if the suspect was armed, but did know he had an acquaintance in one of the dorms.

Smith tells News 5 officers encouraged students to stay in their rooms with the doors locked while officers searched the area.

When officers did not find the suspect on campus, students were  "all clear."
