At least one person was killed in a shooting at a beauty school in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Monday evening.

Officers received a report of an active shooter at the Ravenscroft Beauty College around 6:45 p.m. local time on Monday, according to Fox 59.

Once officers were able to get inside the building they found a man dead, reported local WANE TV. It is believed that the body is that of a shooter.

One woman was wounded in the shooting and taken to a hospital in serious condition.
