State Police said the body of the person who died was found near a vehicle on High Street. The other person shot was flown to Geisinger Holy Spirit Hospital.

An alert was sent out to Shippensburg University students about the shooting.

The university canceled all classes and activities after 2 p.m. Monday due to an abundance of caution.
