Body, explosive devices found in UCF dorm

A body with a self-inflicted gunshot wound was found along with a bag of explosives in a dormitory room at the University of Central Florida early Monday, prompting officials to cancel classes at the main Orlando campus until at least noon, a school spokesman said.

Police made the discovery shortly after 12:20 a.m., after a fire alarm sounded at the Tower 1 dorm and someone called 911 about a person with a gun there, school spokesman Grant Heston said. Officers entered the dorm and found a male dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a bedroom, Heston said.

    My sister lives in Tower I at UCF. The rumor is that the guy planned an attack on everyone after pulling the fire alarm and getting everyone gathered outside in response to the alarm. He had 500 rounds in his room. You think this can't happen to you or your loved ones, think again? God is good.
