Centre College's Danville campus is in lockdown.  Centre spokesman Michael Strysick said in a news release that it’s linked to a double homicide near campus. 

The Lexington Herald Leader reports the shooting was at a pawn shop a half-mile from the college, and the shooter was at large. It also says much of Danville, including public schools, are in lockdown.

Staff at the Danville police department would not comment on the case. An e-mail sent to Centre students asked them to seek shelter in a secure building and keep doors locked.
