A little after 1 p.m. EST this afternoon, police responded to a shooting on the Columbia campus at the Public Health Research Center.


The above text message alert was sent to USC’s 25,000+ students, and all buildings were put on lockdown. Students have since been released as police have confirmed there is no longer an active shooter, but the Public Health Research Center is closed for the remainder of the day.

Two bodies have been found and the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) is investigating an apparent murder-suicide. As of now, no names have been released and it’s unclear whether or not the deceased are students, faculty, or connected with the university at all.

We’ll update as more details unfold.
