A gunman walked into a building on the campus of Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, North Carolina, on Monday and shot the school’s print shop operator, killing him, authorities said.

The school was placed on lockdown, and the gunman remains at large. All buildings have been cleared, Maj. Tom Effler of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said.

“This is not a random situation. It is an isolated situation,” he said.

The victim, Ron Lane, was a longtime employee. The suspected gunman, identified by law enforcement as 20-year-old Kenneth Morgan Stancil III, worked at one time for the victim and is a former student at the school.

The Goldsboro Police Department described Stancil as “armed and dangerous.”

“This is indeed a sad day for Wayne Community College and this close family and community,” school President Kay Albertson said.

“Our hearts are heavy at the loss of an employee — a valued employee — and we will soon be reaching out to the family.”
