Cambridge - Reports are coming in from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology of a shooter near Building 32, also called the Stata Center. An MIT police officer has been shot and killed. This breaking news story will be updated as more information is available.
On the MIT website as of 11:11 p.m. ET, a large message read: "There are gunshots reported in the vicinity of Building 32 (Stata Center). Area is cordoned off. Stay away from area. Click here for more information."
