Two people are dead and one person injured after a gunman opened fire at Texas A&M University-Commerce near Dallas on Monday.

The three victims all suffered gunshots, according to local reports. The injured individual has been taken to a hospital.

Authorities have not released whether a suspect is in custody yet.

The school initially issued a “shelter in place” advisory, but lifted it after two hours.

“Students, faculty and staff are instructed to take shelter and stay in place until further notice. This is a precautionary measure,” the school wrote earlier on its Facebook page.

The shooting occurred near a three-story residence hall on the campus, which is still blocked off.

Classes have been canceled for the rest of Monday.
