Two people are confirmed dead in a shooting at North Lake College in Irving, Texas, near Dallas, and now, police have revealed that one of the dead is the shooter.
North Lake College police confirmed shots were fired on the campus in Irving around 11:45am on Wednesday. The school officially went on lockdown for some time as officers searched for the shooter around campus.
Police have now confirmed via tweet that the shooter is dead and that there doesn’t appear to be any continuing threat. Still, officers will keep searching campus.
“It sounded just like gunshots,” Dani, a North Lake student, told NBC 5. “We heard the first one and thought somebody dropped something … but then it just kept going and everybody just started running. The only thing that went through my mind was just to run.”
Police have asked people to stay away from the campus as they continue their investigation. More details will be released as they come in.
