Two people died Wednesday in an apparent murder-suicide at a Texas community college, prompting an active-shooter alert that instructed students and employees to barricade themselves in rooms. It was the second deadly attack on a Texas campus this week.
Irving police spokesman James McLellan said that no one else was hurt in the shooting at North Lake College, a two-year public school in suburban Dallas.
The college said classes will not resume until Friday.
The shooting came two days after one person was killed and three others injured in a stabbing attack at the University of Texas in Austin.
Police said the suspect in that attack was suffering from mental health troubles and at one point had been involuntarily committed for treatment.
