The picture above shows what is though to be the hall of residence where police found IEDs today as well as an assault weapon and handgun. They also found the body of a male victim thought to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The building - known as 'Tower 1' - has been evacuated and food and counselling services have been made available to the displaced students elsewhere on campus.
