BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) â€” A 23-year-old woman killed two fellow students in a classroom at a vocational college Friday, then killed herself, police said. In South Carolina, a person was shot at Greenville Technical College, but was expected to survive.
The women apparently were shot in their seats in the second-floor classroom at Louisiana Technical College, Baton Rouge Sgt. Don Kelly said. About 20 people were in the room at the time, he said.
Officers ran into the building within four minutes of the first 911 call, which came at 8:36 a.m., Kelly said.
"There was mass pandemonium, people running," he said. "One officer â€” the first into the classroom â€” told me he could still smell gunpowder."
Police withheld the names of the shooter and the victims, ages 21 and 26, until their families could be notified.
The school â€” one of two LTC campuses in Baton Rouge and dozens around the state â€” offers classes in a dozen subjects including early childhood education, practical nursing, drafting and welding.
