(CNN) — At least one person has died after shots were fired at Michigan State University, a university spokesperson told the Detroit News, after campus police earlier reported multiple injuries with a suspect at large.

“The suspect is believed to be on foot right now. Community members on and off campus should continue to shelter in place. Police are continuing to respond,” MSU police tweeted.

Police said they are searching for one suspect, described as a short male wearing a mask.

Police reported shots fired near Berkey Hall on the East Lansing campus around 8:30 p.m. ET, telling the campus community in a tweet to “Please secure-in-place immediately.”

About an hour later, campus police reported “There is another reported shooting at IM East.”

“It appears there is only one suspect at this time,” MSU police said.

IM East is a campus fitness center about a mile away from Berkey Hall, where police first reported shots were fired.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she is being briefed on the shooting at the university.

“I’ve been briefed on the shooting at Michigan state University. The Michigan State Police along with @msupolice, local law enforcement and first responders are on the ground. Let’s wrap our arms around the Spartan Community tonight. We will keep everyone updated as we learn more,” the governor tweeted.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Detroit also tweeted that it’s “responding to an Active Shooter” at the university.

Special agents from the FBI are also responding to assist, a spokesperson from the bureau’s Detroit office tells CNN.

Police said victims are being taken to E.W. Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, but did not provide information on how many were injured or what their conditions were at this time.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
