BEAVER COUNTY, Pa. – Two people were shot dead on the Pennsylvania State University Beaver campus in western Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon, reports CBS Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania State Police tell the station the shooting is being investigated as a possible murder-suicide.

The incident reportedly happened Wednesday afternoon at the Center Township campus, about 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. Troopers say a campus employee was fatally shot near her car by her estranged husband, who then shot and killed himself.

The incident was reported shortly before 4 p.m. in the food services area, adjacent to the student union, campus spokeswoman April Johnston-Smith told CBS News. The threat is now contained, she said.

Johnston-Smith said students were not involved, but wouldn’t confirm whether any employees were.

The campus was closed Wednesday afternoon. Multiple ambulances were responding to the scene.
