Students at the University of Central Florida were roused in the middle of the night for an emergency evacuation after a man allegedly died as a result of a self-inflicted gun wound. Campus reports say the discovery of the body was followed by discovery of a “suspicious device.” The weapon used was described as a so-called “assault rifle.” Other reports say explosive devices were found on scene:
