A University of Utah track athlete was shot and killed Monday night, the school announced.

Lauren McCluskey, a senior communication major from Pullman, Washington, was found dead in a parked car near a residential hall on campus. She was 21. The suspect believed to be responsible for her death was found dead a short time later at an off-campus location.

The university canceled all Tuesday classes. Counseling and support services will remain available. A vigil for McCluskey is being planned for Wednesday evening at the Park Building on campus.

Such a tragedy.
