SALISBURY — Police officials say several hundred Livingstone College students and visitors were involved in a fight prompting campus police to place the campus on lockdown early Sunday morning.

Salisbury Police issued a statement today saying the incident occurred just after midnight and it was the third time police had responded to the campus at 701 W. Monroe St.

Livingstone College Police and Rowan Sheriff’s deputies were called to the campus to assist after officials received calls in reference to a disturbance. Police say Salisbury Fire and Rowan EMS were asked to stage in an area, if needed.

In response to growing confrontations with officers and fighting by some members of the groups, tear gas was used to disperse the crowd. The crowd did disperse, officials said.

One person was arrested during the event. Police did not immediately have details available.
