A St. Louis school shooting occurred Tuesday at Stevens Institute of Business and Arts about 2 p.m., Inquisitr reports Jan. 15. The gunman is reportedly a 21-year-old college student who went into the trade school building armed, shooting one victim before shooting himself in the chest. Students were evacuated and SWAT teams called in to check the facility.
The condition of the victim is unknown at this point, but the gunman didn't suffer fatal wounds. Both were transported to SLU Hospital.
Jackie, who owns a tea room next to the small St. Louis school, told FOX News that a man she talked with had been in the elevator with the gunman. She said he claimed he was angry with the victim he shot -- who is the financial advisor to the college. Officials have yet to confirm this.
According to the Huffington Post, police say the gunman and the victim were familiar with each other and that it wasn't a "random" incident.
"He was familiar to faculty and staff," St. Louis Police Chief, Sam Dotson, said in a press conference. "The victim and the shooter were familiar with each other. They knew each other. This did not appear to be random."
No other victims are reported in the St. Louis school shooting.
