Man Kills University of Arkansas Professor, Then Self

FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas -- Two men died Monday afternoon in an apparent murder-suicide on the first day of classes at the University of Arkansas, the university said on its Web site. "School Shooting Map"

Emergency personnel survey the scene outside Kimpel Hall at the University of Arkansas

The shootings occurred in a professor's office on the second floor of Kimpel Hall, in the southeastern part of the campus in Fayetteville, Arkansas, said Jay Nickel, assistant manager for media relations at the university.

"We believe the two persons killed are a faculty member and a graduate student, but that remains to be confirmed," Chancellor John White said in a statement.

White said it was premature to speculate about the details surrounding the shooting.

"This was, to the best of our knowledge, a possible dispute involving two individuals -- (it) did not go further than that," White said.

Police received a 911 call about shots fired at 12:14 p.m. They arrived to find a locked office and communicated briefly with a male inside the room, said university police Capt. Brad Bruns.

Kimpel Hall houses faculty in a number of departments -- communication, drama, English, foreign languages and journalism, said university spokesman Roger Williams.

The bodies were found in a section of the building that houses offices for the English department, though it was not clear whether the victims belonged to that department.

Patsy Watkins, chairwoman of the journalism department, said police arrived at the building at 12:20 p.m., when many of the classrooms on the second floor of Kimpel Hall would have been filled.

Students left the building in an orderly fashion, saying they had been told to leave, Watkins said.

The chancellor urged students and faculty to call their families to reassure them that they were unharmed. He also said counseling was available for anyone traumatized by the shooting.

The 15,000-student campus is in the northwest part of the state. U.S. President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton taught law there in the mid-1970s.
