The incident began at around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday when officers were called to reports of shots being fired at North Lake College, prompting a major emergency response and causing the school to issue a lockdown.

Just over an hour later, at 12:45 p.m., the Irving Police Department confirmed that two bodies had been found. "We have what appears to be one victim deceased and the shooter has committed suicide," police said.

There was no immediate word on the identities of the victim and the shooter, or what may have led up to the shooting.

As a precaution, North Lake College remains on lockdown while officers clear the entire campus.

"There appears to be no continuing threat but police will continue to search to make the campus safe," a police spokesperson said. North Lake College will be closed for the remainder of the day and all students, staff, and visitors who are not inside one of the buildings have been told to leave the area.

North Lake College is a community college that is part of the Dallas County Community College District and is located in the Las Colinas area of Irving, a city about 9 miles (15 kilometers) northwest of Dallas.
