Authorities say a former Rutgers University student stabbed two people in its business school and himself and all three are being treated at a hospital.

The university sent out an alert just before 3 pm Friday saying there had been a stabbing at the business school in New Brunswick and telling people to avoid the area and take shelter. About a half-hour later, the school sent another alert saying a suspect was in custody and the area was safe.

Officials say a former student injured another student and a faculty member. No charges had yet been filed. Officials didn’t say how serious the injuries were. Eyewitnesses described pools and trails of blood at the scene.
