Police say the Florida Atlantic shooting incident is "under control," according to a report at NBC News posted earlier today.
Police shot and wounded a man in his 20s on Friday morning who was on a rooftop of a building at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. Authorities were at the school to investigate reports of a homeless person on the roof. Once there, the man pulled a knife and at that time "shots were fired." The man was transferred to Delray Medical Center, and Boca Raton Police Chief Dan Alexander says he is in serious condition.
Sources say the Florida Atlantic shooting occurred on the roof of a building in Research Park, at the north end of the university's property. The area is not part of main grounds at FAU, and police say there was never a threat to students, faculty or staff.
NBC News reports the campus was not evacuated or placed on lock-down. Workers from the building where the shooting occurred say they were not allowed back in.
