Authorities have responded to Stevens Institute of Business and Arts after it has been reported that a shooting occurred there on Tuesday.

The suspect is allegedly a currently enrolled student, and allegedly shot one administrator before feeling to a stairwell and turning the gun on himself.

The victim and suspect, who, according to St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson, allegedly knew each other before the incident, were transported to St. Louis University Hospital, according to KMOV.

“He was familiar to faculty and staff,” Dotson said in a press conference. “The victim and the shooter were familiar with each other. They knew each other. This did not appear to be random.”

The weapon — a handgun — was recovered in the possession of the suspect.

According to police, no other student was hurt in the incident, as 40 students were escorted from the building by SWAT units.

Stevens Institute of Business and Arts has an enrollment of approximately 180 students.
