Two people were shot dead and an unknown number injured at a university in the Australian city of Melbourne on Monday and a suspected gunman was taken into custody, police said.

"We have an unconfirmed report of two people dead and people injured...and we have a man in custody," a police spokeswoman told Reuters, adding there was no indication yet of a possible motive.

An ambulance spokesman said two people were injured in the shooting at a suburban Clayton campus of Melbourne's Monash University.

One suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and another suffered a leg wound, Australian Associated Press reported.
