Three people are dead after an attack Friday morning at Casper College in Wyoming, the Casper Star Tribune reports.

According to The Tribune, two people were killed in a classroom on campus and another body was found at an undisclosed location in the city. One of the victims was a male faculty member.

The shooter is one of the dead and reportedly committed suicide, according to KCWY. The station added that the unidentified shooter "was not a current student at Casper College."

Details of the attack are unclear at this point, but a law enforcement official told NBC News that a "bow and arrow type" weapon was allegedly used.

The college went on lockdown on Friday morning, but police lifted the security restrictions just before 10:00 a.m. local time, according to the college's Twitter account. The college has cancelled classes until further notice.
