A long-time employee of Stevens Institute of Business & Arts was shot by a student in a dispute over financial aid Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The student then shot himself in a stairwell.
Both men were in surgery at 3 p.m. and St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said he was "hopeful" they would survive after the shooting, about 2 p.m.
Authorities said the victim, in his late 40s, was shot in the chest with a handgun by a student in a fourth-floor office, police said. The suspected shooter then went to a stairwell between the third and fourth floors and shot himself. Dotson said a gun was found with the man.
