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:

UCF News provided running updates on Twitter through the night:

Classes were canceled until at least noon.

Twitchy will continue to monitor the story and provide updates.

    He committed suicide with an “assault rifle”? Must have had pretty long arms!

      Actually an AR 15 Carbine is a relatively short rifle. Who knows what’s in the mind of these crazies.

    My first thought was “how tragic and sad that a father’s daughter or mother’s son felt they had nothing to live for.”

    Unfortunately, too many liberals first thought will probably be something along the lines of highlighting the weapon chosen with little to no regard of what actually occurred. The loss of a child’s life.

    Can’t let a tragedy “go to waste” as Rahm declares.

    My niece’s boyfriend goes to UCF, and so do the children of some friends of mine. Hope everyone is OK.
