Multiple media outlets are reporting that a gunman entered the school, took the elevator to the fourth floor, and shot an administrator in the chest. The gunman then reportedly shot himself.

Both the suspect and victim were taken to the hospital. They are in critical condition.

There are some reports that the shooter was a former student.

Twitchy will monitor this story and will update this post with new information.

Update:

Police are saying the shooter was a part-time student who had been attending the school for four or five years.

Both the shooter and the victim are currently in surgery. Both are expected to survive.

The local Fox affiliate is reporting that the shooter used a handgun, not a so-called “assault weapon”:

The victim has been identified by a local media outlet as Greg Elsenrath. He is the financial aid director at the college.

    Liberalism is a disease. I just hope this unarmed victim is able to make a full recovery.

    Too bad they didn’t have part time armed security

    Will any fingers be pointed at the media for glamorizing this kind of behavior through perpetual over coverage?

    Obama’s speechwriters working overtime to add this to tomorrow’s appearance: “…and even just yesterday…there was another shooting. [pause] This must end. While the recommendations I am making today refer to assault weapons, I believe handguns are the next…uhhh…target.”

    This is not a massacre then, this was a simple attempted murder/suicide, apparently.
    So, how would a ban on high capacity magazines have made a difference?
    Next on the chopping block; single round magazines…

    Have there been other shootings at this school? From the tweet that’s what is sounds like.

    Again, this is not about gun control. It’s about personal discipline. No deterring punishments mean no respect for abiding by the law.

    Ban elevators since he used one to get to the 4th floor……………..even though he could have also used the stairs……..

    Its the same as banning guns even though he could have also used a knife.

    isn’t that right liberals? Its called “consistency” in logic………..

      A shooter could have used knife, but not have killed anyone.
      That’s why there aren’t “mass stabbings” – it’s hard to kill lots of people with a knife and that’s what this is about. Lowering the homicide rate, not eliminating it.

        There are mass bombings. One was attempted by a union supporter in Wisconsin’s capitol building.

        Osaka School Massacre in Japan in 2001…..man kills 8 kids with a kitchen knife……Akihabara Massacre in 2008 involves stabbing 12 people killing four. Liaoning Province Massacre in 2003 has 13 killed by a knife….. In the same province in 2012 a teenager kills 8 with a knife. Keep in mind these countries do not allow civilian firearms possession. Point is, deranged individuals are killers and guns/knives are tools, not the other way around. A madman could conceivably get a water gun, fill it with gasoline and use it as a flame thrower. Just because that hasn’t been done doesn’t mean it isn’t a risk or wouldn’t be effective.

    I’m confident Obama will remember to quote himself tomorrow.

    “They bring a knife, we bring a gun.” “Punish your enemies” “my mother’s insurance company wouldn’t pay for her healthcare on her death bed [lie], “Bush doesn’t care about black people down in New Orleans”..etc etc.

    Then the biggest lie of all: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”.

    There is more logic to Obama “causing” shootings than inanimate objects.
