Details are scarce on the suspect. According to CBS Pittsburgh, a Pennsylvania State Police trooper said a university employee was shot on campus by her estranged husband. The husband then shot himself to death. The shooting happened at 3:41 p.m. Eastern, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
