COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina law enforcement officials say two people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide on the state's flagship university campus.

The school said Thursday afternoon that a shooting had occurred at its new School of Public Health, in a busy section of downtown Columbia.

State law enforcement division spokesman Thom Berry says he does not have any other details about the apparent murder-suicide. He says the two were found in the public health building but would not say where.

Berry says there was "no active shooter situation." He called the situation very isolated.

A school spokesman wouldn't immediately comment.

The shooting happened a couple of blocks from the Statehouse and two blocks from the university's basketball arena. The street is one of the city's busiest.
