  • Police and EMS respond to the report of a shooting at the Penn State Beaver campus in western Pennsylvania Dec. 13 2017 KDKA

At least two people have been killed after a shooting on the Penn State Beaver campus.

The campus is on lockdown until further notice.

Police said that her husband arrived there, and after they fought, he pulled a gun and shot her before turning the weapon on himself, WPXI reported. Those messages refer to the situation as "contained".

It also confirmed that police responded to an "incident on campus" and said there was no current threat but people should stay away from the Student Union Building and Food Services area.


Pennsylvania state police Lt. Eric Hermick tells WTAE-TV multiple shots were fired Wednesday afternoon near a Penn State Beaver dining hall.

The shooting is thought to have been a murder/suicide situation.

According to investigators, an estranged husband shot and killed an employee with food services in a parking lot. CBS Pittsburgh reports that the woman was shot dead by her auto. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the first 911 calls came from the school at 3:38 p.m. local time. About 650 students attend the school, but not many were on camps because it's finals week.

This is a developing story and will be updated as additional information becomes available.
