Authorities say a university student was killed after a chemical accident at the university.
The Ohio Department of Transportation says the accident occurred Sunday night and that a male student was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The Butler University School of Medicine said in a statement Monday that it has suspended classes at the medical school.
The medical school said it had no information about a suspect.
Authorities did not immediately release details about the student.
They say the incident happened on the second floor of the building.
A Butler University spokesperson says it was notified about the accident by a university security officer.
It says there are no reports of anyone being hurt.
The student was a medical student who was scheduled to begin classes on Monday.
We will work with authorities to provide the best information we can, said the school’s interim president, Mike Meeks.
Meeks said the university would make an announcement on Tuesday about when classes would resume.
A person who answered the phone at the Butler University’s campus Monday afternoon did not respond to a message seeking comment.
A statement from the Butler School of Nursing said that it was “aware of the tragic events that occurred at the Medical School and that the medical staff and the campus community are mourning the loss of one of our colleagues.”
The statement said the medical college had “a very large and dedicated medical and nursing staff” and was “deeply saddened by the loss” of the student, who is an RN and is survived by his wife.
The school says it has asked Butler University Medical Center to provide assistance to the family of the deceased student.
The department said in its statement that the university has “no additional information about the patient or the incident at this time.”
