A shooting at the University of Central Arkansas has killed two people and wounded another, police say. UCA police spokeswoman Lt. Rhonda Swindle says the shots were fired at a little after 9 p.m. Sunday near Arkansas Hall. She can't say whether the victims were students, but did say all three were male.

One died at the scene and another died at a hospital. The condition of the third victim isn't available. Swindle says the campus will remain locked down Monday and classes have been canceled. She doesn't have any information about suspects, but the university police Web site says one person is in custody and three others are being sought.

Swindle couldn't immediately explain why the shootings occurred.
