(CBS/AP)-- At least one person was killed and another was wounded Friday morning in an attack at a community college in central Wyoming.

It happened around 9 a.m. at Casper College, said school spokesman Rich Fujita.

Police took into custody one person who is injured, he said.

Fujita said he had no additional information, including how the attack happened, any weapon used, or who was killed.

The campus was locked down and all classes and activities cancelled until further notice. Students were advised to stay where they were until police give the all-clear.

Casper College is a two-year community college in Wyoming's second-largest city. Casper, population 56,000, is about 250 miles northwest of Denver.

Wyoming residents refer to Casper as the "Oil City" because it's a hub for the state's small oil industry.

The city is flanked to the south by Casper Mountain, scene of a massive wildfire in September that burned more than 24 square miles of forest and meadows and destroyed 37 homes and cabins.
