FAU Police Chief Charles Lowe said "We received a call about someone who appeared to be a homeless man on the roof of building 3 in the research part of the campus. Two FAU police officers arrived on the scene and found a white male, between the ages of 20 and 30 on the roof."
It appears the suspect produced a knife and shots were fired. The suspect was struck. He was taken in serious condition to Delray Medical Center. No police officers were injured and no civilians were directly involved in the incident.
This is an isolated incident which occurred and was confined within the research park itself. The university was not on lock down. The incident was contained to the roof. Boca Raton Police and the State Attorney's Office will investigate.
Chief Lowe would not comment on how many times the suspect was shot, whether he was threatening the officers or how the man was able to gain access to the roof.
He stressed that the investigation is just underway and the information is preliminary.
Boca Raton Police Chief Dan Alexander also spoke, but gave little specifics.
