UPDATE: Lockdown lifted at Twin Cities college after security officer shot

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KARE) UPDATE: The lockdown at a Twin Cities college campus has been lifted.

Police are investigating the shooting of a security officer at St. Catherine University in St. Paul around 10 Tuesday night.

They say a man shot the officer in the shoulder when he confronted him in a wooded area on campus, but the officer's injuries are reportedly not life-threatening.

St. Kate's security guards do not carry guns, so the officer was unarmed.

Police spent much of the night searching buildings, then lifted the lockdown just after 2 a.m.

There's no word on any arrests.
