    The lockdown began at 10:15 p.m. EDT on Monday (0215 GMT Tuesday), when a suspect in a criminal investigation in Durham, North Carolina, fled toward the university, Chancellor Debra Saunders-White said in a statement on the school's website. Details of the investigation were not immediately known.
