Police station shooting puts Texas university on lockdown

WASHINGTON — A police station shooting Tuesday forced a college in Texas to be put on lockdown, but the university authorities said the shooter was dead and no students or staff had been injured.
"Shots were fired at the McKinney Police Department near the Central Park Campus, 2200 W. University Drive, in McKinney shortly after 9:00 am (1400 GMT) today," a statement on the Collin College website said.

A report by local television station CBS 11 News said a man allegedly rolled up at the police station in the central Texas city in a pick-up truck loaded with ammunition and began shooting.

Police returned fire and the suspect was thought to have been shot and killed behind the building, the report said, adding that there were unconfirmed reports of a second shooter on the loose.

"The campus was put on lockdown immediately, and students were notified through the college's emergency alert system. It has been confirmed that the shooter is dead," the college website statement said.

"No students, faculty or staff were injured. Police are still on the scene and the campus is on lockdown until further notice."

CBS 11 News said its reporters on a helicopter witnessed that the pick-up truck had apparently caught fire during the incident and that fire engines were stationed nearby.
