1 dead, 1 hurt in stabbings at Ohio university

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — One person has died and another has been injured in stabbings on the University of Toledo's main campus.

In a statement on its website, the university says a stabbing was reported at 9 p.m. Wednesday at its International House. When officers arrived, they found an injured person and took the person to a local hospital.

University administrator Larry Burns says about 20 minutes later, police found a second victim who had died, apparently from injuries caused by a stabbing.

A university spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment early Thursday.

The university says International House is home to six students during the winter break, along with four staff members and four student workers. The Toledo Blade reports that when school is in session, about 400 students live there.
