    The suspected gunman in a shooting at Florida State University has been shot and killed by officers on campus, police said.

    Tallahassee Police spokesman Dave Northway said on Thursday that three other people were wounded in the attack that took place earlier in the day.

    The shooting prompted a campus alert that urged people to take shelter and stay away from doors and windows.

    Florida State University issued a telephone alert, warning of a dangerous situation on the Tallahassee campus, the Associated Press news agency reported.

    The alert urged people to take shelter in a nearby building and stay away from doors and windows without providing no details of what sparked the warning, the AP reported, adding that the campus and Tallahassee police declined immediate comment.
