Police said 2 people were shot and killed and a teenager was wounded Tuesday in the parking lot of an eastern Kentucky community college, authorities told the Associated Press.

A police dispatcher told The Associated Press the shooting happened about 5:30 p.m. at Hazard Community & Technical College in Hazard, Ky.

The dispatcher, who was not authorized to release information, spoke on condition of anonymity.

Two people showed up at the Kentucky State Police post in Hazard and said they were involved in the shooting, police spokesman Tony Watts said, but he said he did not know whether they were alleged perpetrators or witnesses. State police held the two until Hazard police came and took them into custody, he said.

Conor Duff, the college’s evening coordinator, said the school was on lockdown following the shooting at the campus, 90 miles southeast of Lexington. Police searched the school’s two buildings and determined that no one else was at risk, Duff said.

Classes had resumed Monday at the campus after the holiday break, according to the college’s website, which also posted that there had been an incident and asked students to stay away from the main campus.
