“A suspect is in custody following a stabbing incident that occurred at the Rutgers Business School,” the university said in a statement.

About an hour earlier, the university posted on Facebook that people should “Avoid the area and/or take shelter.”

Neither the attacker nor the victims’ identities were immediately clear, a spokesman for the university told AFP.
