A Pennsylvania State Police officer keeps watch over the back of the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pittsburgh on March 8.

A gunman opened fire at a psychiatric clinic at the University of Pittsburgh on Thursday in a shooting that killed two people, including the gunman, and wounded seven others. 

A SWAT team was on the scene shortly after the shooting. A street was blocked off, and the area thronged with police. Most students are on spring break, though offices and buildings have been open. 

There were no details about the second death, and it was unclear whether the seven wounded people were patients, employees or visiting family members.
