The shooter and another person have been found dead in a possible murder-suicide at North Lake College near Dallas, according to the Irving Police Department.

“There appears to be no continuing threat but police will continue to search to make the campus safe,” the police department said in a tweet.

Police initially responded to a report of an “active shooter” at the school, authorities said late Wednesday morning on Twitter.

The campus, in the Dallas suburb of Irving, was on “intruder lockdown,” but later Wednesday was closed for the rest of the day, according to a tweet from the school.

A student there, Haseeb Ahmed, said he was in class when he heard three gunshots. It wasn’t immediately clear where the shots were fired.

Ahmed and his classmates have barricaded the door to their classroom, he said.

“We gathered the hardest materials in our possession to throw if something happens,” he said.

This is a developing story.
