Chicago, April 11 (Xinhua) Two people were shot and killed Friday at a community college in the US state of Michigan, media reports said.
A man and a woman were found dead in a classroom in Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, the police said.

In this apparent murder-suicide, the man was the aggressor who came into the room with a shotgun, officials said.

Some students trapped inside the building were evacuated by police.

The college released an e-mail alert for its students and faculty members shortly after the shooting.

“Armed police officers are on campus near the Fine Arts building. If you are on campus, lock down your classrooms and offices immediately. Do not leave until cleared to do so,” the e-mail said.

No further details were immediately available.
