The estranged husband of a Penn State University employee shot and killed his ex-wife before taking his own life Wednesday afternoon, officials said.
The Penn State Beaver campus in Monaca was placed on lockdown after the man shot his ex near her car just before 4 p.m., State Troopers told KDKA. The gunman then turned the gun on himself.
Campus officials urged students to stay away from the student union building and the food services area after reports of as many as 15 shots.
A motive for the shooting was not immediately known.
The branch campus — which is located 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh — has about 700 undergraduate students.
Wednesday’s shooting comes just one day before the five year anniversary of the tragic Sandy Hook school shooting, which left 26 people dead.
