Several people were killed and dozens were injured in a shooting at Prague University on Thursday, according to Czech police.

The suspect was “eliminated,” officials said.

Police advised people in the area not to go outside, and said evacuations were taking place.

As chaos broke out, people fled from Prague’s Old Town, running across the iconic Charles Bridge.

Leo Menindez, from Mexico, told ABC News, “We started hearing the police sirens and ambulances from the Charles Bridge. Then we started hearing the shots and then everyone started to run.”
