SHAWNEE, Okla. - Classes will resume Monday at Oklahoma Baptist University after Sunday night's lockdown and search for a gunman.

Authorities say the the situation started when they tried to pull over a stolen car. The driver led police on a chase, then crashed the vehicle near campus and fled the scene.

OBU went on lockdown for a few hours as a safety precaution, until police say the suspect was no longer in the area.

Authorities are now searching for Brice Winrow. Officials say he is 6'3", 240 pounds and was last seen wearing jeans and a red shirt.
