NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Two members of the Rutgers community and a former student were involved in a stabbing incident on the Rutgers Business School campus Friday afternoon, the school said in a statement.

Rutgers posted an official statement on Facebook and said the suspect in the stabbing had been taken into custody.

All three people involved were taken to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries.

Rutgers University police promptly responded and issued a text alert to students, faculty and staff when the incident occurred, and a second alert when the suspect was taken into custody and the community was no longer in danger.

Rutgers said Friday afternoon's incident was isolated, but they are working to address concerns that some community members may still have.

Grief counseling will be available to students, faculty and staff who were affected by Friday's events.

An investigation is ongoing and the university will release details as they become available.

The university tweeted shortly before 3 p.m. through its verified account that there had been a stabbing at the Rutgers Business School in News Brunswick.

"Avoid the area and/or take shelter," the school went on to say in its tweet.

In a 3:30 p.m. update, the university said the culprit had been apprehended.

"Actor in custody. Area is safe. Police investigation ongoing," the tweet read.
