Shots fired at Penn State's Beaver campus

Posted December 15, 2017

Monaca, Pa. - A shooting on the Penn State Beaver Campus has left at least two people dead, according to CBS affiliate KDKA.

Officials said the campus will be closed until further notice.

"We are so sad that this tragedy happened on campus but we are vigilant and our police are doing everything they can to keep people safe and we're happy that the situation is contained and we will be working on our grief together as a community, said Cushman".

The shooting was reported at 3:38 the school's food services building, which is adjacent to the student union and includes a kitchen and area for students to sit and eat.

Pennsylvania state police Lt. Eric Hermick tells WTAE-TV multiple shots were fired Wednesday afternoon near a Penn State Beaver dining hall. The two are separated by over 150 miles.

The victim, identified as 49-year-old Lesli Kelly, was gunned down by her estranged ex-husband William Kelly, who then turned the gun on himself, reports ABC 6.

"We've verified that all the children are OK, that was the urgent matter in this case, other than there was no active shooter, the urgency was to find out where all the family members were because we did find evidence in the vehicle that alarmed us to indicate somebody else may have been harmed prior to this event", Hermick said. CBS Pittsburgh reports that the woman was shot dead by her vehicle.

CBS Pittsburgh said several ambulances arrived on scene after some 15 shots were fired. The school was founded in 1965 and has around 720 students enrolled in addition to 200 staff.
