The Roanoke Times is reporting that police scoured the city Thursday night for a man they believe shot and killed a person. The victim was not identified.
University officials locked down the campus while students, staff and city residents were asked to "please seek shelter."
The suspect was described as a young black male who is tall and slim, may have a goatee and was wearing no shirt and a camouflage jacket, Goodman said.
A preliminary investigation indicated the shooting was the result of an altercation in the 500 block of Calhoun Street, a residential area where primarily university students live.
The suspect, who was last seen going west on foot on Jefferson Street, is considered armed and dangerous.
