The shooting allegedly happened on the 4th floor of Campbell Hall, a co-ed residence building. Classes are cancelled and students have been told to shelter in place and avoid the area.
Police confirmed that the two people killed were not students and they believe the shooting occurred as a result of a ‘domestic situation’.
