(CBS/AP/KOVR) - Three people were killed Tuesday night during a shooting in a parking garage at San Jose State University, said authorities.

Campus police were alerted to the shooting on the fifth floor of the main campus garage around 8:30 p.m., authorities said. Two people were dead on the scene while the third, the suspected shooter, was taken to the hospital but later died, reports CBS affiliate KOVR.

Investigators do not believe the incident to be gang related or random, said school spokeswoman Pat Harris.

"Officers realized upon arrival that this was an isolated incident," Harris said.

Authorities announced this morning that they're investigating the incident as a murder-suicide, but did not say whether the shooting victims or suspect were students at the University, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

"I'm just surprised it happened here," Josh Tullo, 30, a senior, told the Mercury News. "I never thought it would happen at this school."

This shooting follows a Saturday shooting at a San Jose State University house party that reportedly injured one and left two men dead.
