The body has not yet been identified, but authorities believe the victim is a student of UCF and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

University police responded to a 12:20 a.m call to the dorm after a fire alarm went off. A spokesman for the University of Central Florida, Grant Heston, said while university police were on their way to the site, a 911 call was placed about a man with a gun.

Approximately 500 students were evacuated from the dorm and an adjacent parking lot to ensure their safety and a swift response. Heston said, “We don’t believe there is any imminent threat to the campus.”
