DEARBORN, Mich. – Two people were killed at Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn Friday afternoon in what police are calling a murder-suicide.

Deputy Police Chief Gregg Brighton said Henry Ford Community College was locked down in the early afternoon, but the campus has since been secured and the lockdown was lifted.

Police said they got a call around 12:30 p.m. on a report of an assault. En route, they got another report of shots being fired at the college’s fine arts center.

When police arrived both victims, a 20-year-old female theatre student and a 28-year-old male student were dead.

The 28-year-old gunman used a shotgun to shoot the woman and himself. Local 4 has learned the two students were in a relationship, and had been in a theater class together.

Crime scene investigators said the shooting was in room F111. Police said the 20-year-old was rehearsing a scene in the empty room when the shooter barged in. More on MSNBC
