The Penn State Beaver campus in Monaca was placed on lockdown after the man shot his ex near her vehicle just before 4 p.m., State Troopers told KDKA. This was never an "active shooter" event.

The campus' official Twitter account confirmed that the shooting occurred and the campus was closed but would reopen on Thursday.
