Authorities say two people were shot and killed and a teen wounded in the parking lot of an eastern Kentucky community college.

A police dispatcher told The Associated Press the shooting happened Tuesday afternoon at Hazard Community & Technical college in Hazard, Ky. The dispatcher spoke on condition of anonymity because the coroner on site was the only official allowed to be quoted by name.

The dispatcher said the injured teen was being taken to the University of Kentucky hospital.

Conor Duff is the college's evening coordinator. Duff said the shootings happened about 4:30 p.m. at the campus 90 miles southeast of Lexington. Duff said police then went through the school's two buildings to ensure no one else was at risk.

Duff said the school was on lockdown.
