A male student at the University of Central Florida in Orlando committed suicide in his dorm room early Monday morning, according to the Associated Press. Police arrived at the scene at 12:20 a.m. and found two guns and homemade explosives in the student’s room. The student lived in as single room in a suite with three other roommates who were unharmed. Approximately 500 students were forced to leave the residence hall in the middle of the night and all morning classes before noon were cancelled. The bomb squad was able to safely remove all of the contents of the room without injuring anyone else. Officials declined to give details on how the student was planning to use these devices.
