Washington: One person and a suspected shooter were killed Wednesday at a community college campus near Dallas in an apparent murder-suicide, according to local police.

North Lake College in Irving, Texas locked down its campus following reports of an active shooter in the area at approximately 11:45 am local time (1645 GMT), according to local media.

Approximately an hour later police found two bodies in a campus building.

“We have what appears to be one victim deceased & the shooter has committed suicide,” the Irving Police Department announced on Twitter. “There appears to be no continuing threat but police will continue to search to make the campus safe.”

Neither person has been publicly identified and the college said it would remain closed for the rest of the day.
