2 Critical After Shooting At Business College

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (CNN) — A part-time student at a business and arts college in St. Louis shot and wounded a school employee Tuesday before wounding himself at the institute, St. Louis police said.

The suspect, who apparently shot himself, and the Stevens Institute of Business and Arts employee were taken to a hospital, where they were in surgery Tuesday afternoon, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Chief Sam Dotson said.

Police officers responding to a 911 call found the employee, identified only as a man in his late 40s, wounded in the school in downtown St. Louis. Officers then found the wounded suspect in a stairwell, as well as a handgun that investigators believe was used in the shooting, Dotson said.

Other students, faculty and staff members “headed for the doors” after the shooting and were taken to “an offsite location” to be interviewed by investigators, Dotson said.

[Initial post, 3:59 p.m. ET] Two men have been taken to a hospital in critical condition after a shooting at a St. Louis business college Tuesday, St. Louis fire Capt. Dan Sutter said.

A suspect was in custody after the shooting at Stevens Institute of Business and Arts, according to a St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department officer.

No names or details about the injuries were immediately released.

      Hey Mark bet you didn't know that racism/white supremacy is still responsible for the world's most sickening genocides, land appropriation and global pollution ever to occur in the name of progress did ya? What non-whites do will never equal the extreme brutality and abuse you can commit. Research history and think before you type such drivel!!!!
