1 employee killed, 2 wounded in Ohio St. shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University says an overnight shooting at a campus maintenance building left one of its employees dead and two others wounded.

The shooting was first reported at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. University police say a suspect was taken into custody after heavily armed officers searched the area, which is near the school's massive football stadium.

University Police Chief Paul Denton says one of the wounded employees is in critical condition and the other is in stable condition.

No names have been released. Denton says police are trying to determine the motive.

Ohio State says no students were involved. The university, the nation's largest, says classes will be held Tuesday.
