The FBI is probing an apparent suicide on the campus of the University of Central Florida, where explosives were found inside a dorm.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the victim is a student at the school who was killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Sentinel reports, via college spokesman Grant Heston:
