COLUMBIA, S.C. (WNEW/CBS19/AP) — South Carolina law enforcement officials say two people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide on the state’s flagship university campus.
The school said Thursday afternoon that a shooting had occurred at its new School of Public Health, in a busy section of downtown Columbia.
State law enforcement division spokesman Thom Berry says he does not have any other details about the apparent murder-suicide. He says the two were found in the public health building but would not say where.
Berry says there was “no active shooter situation.” He called the situation very isolated.
