It was not immediately clear if any other people live in the apartment.
At least four Penn State Police vehicles were at the scene -- a Special Response Unit, two cruisers and an SUV.

Various people milled about the scene around 11 p.m., though the crowd had thinned to about five or six by 1 a.m. this morning.
Many people outside declined comment.
