Body, explosive devices found in University of Central Florida dorm – UCF's Grant Heston shares details on 'Starting Point'

FROM CNN WIRES:

(CNN) - Authorities found a body and a bag of improvised explosive devices in a dormitory tower at the University of Central Florida early Monday, prompting officials to cancel classes at the Orlando school until at least noon, a school spokesman said.

Police went to the dorm after getting a call about a person with a gun sometime after midnight. Hundreds of students were evacuated from the tower, and police found a male dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a bedroom, school spokesman Grant Heston said.

Police also found an assault weapon and a bag of improvised explosive devices there, Heston said. The FBI has been contacted, he said.

Heston didn't say whether the dead person was a student, or release a name.
