Three killed in apparent murder-suicide



SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Three people were killed in an apparent murder-suicide at Shepherd University on Saturday, officials said.
A man shot two other men in a campus parking lot, then shot himself about 2 p.m., university spokeswoman Valerie Owens said.
"We are stunned to hear about this terrible tragedy," President David Dunlop said in a statement. "There is no continuing threat to any other student."
The West Virginia State Police are investigating.
The names of the shooter and victims have not been released, Owens said.
Shepherdstown is about 80 miles northwest of Washington, D.C., in eastern West Virginia.
