Los Angeles police Officer Drake Madison says the stabbing happened Friday afternoon. Officials have identified the victim as 50 year old faculty member Bosco Tjan who has been a staff member since 2001. He says a suspect was taken into custody.

KTLA-TV reports that USC texted students to stay away from the campus' Seeley G. Mudd building because of police activity. The text says there was "no danger to USC or the community."

The building is in the heart of campus near the school's running track.
