Reports on Twitter of Green fleeing to the parking lot of Allegheny Commons appear to be false.

Green set off a panic earlier today when he fled arrest for charges pertaining to a shooting and drug possession in Ashtabula County, Ohio.

His flight onto campus sparked a campus alert and a lockdown.

Green forcefully entered a home on Loomis Street before escaping and purportedly heading north, past Allegheny Commons to an area near the Crawford County Fairgrounds.

Police purportedly called the manhunt around 5 p.m. this evening, but police continue to patrol near the scene.
