COLUMBIA, S.C. (WSPA/WCBD) – Classes have been canceled Friday at one building on the University of South Carolina campus in Columbia.

There are no classes being held at the Gambrell Hall following a death investigation.

USC police referred questions to a school spokesman, who said he could not provide details but said SLED is leading the investigation. Spokesman Jeff Stensland said there is no danger to students.

SLED spokeswoman Kathryn Richardson said agents and crime scene investigators are at the building.

Coroner Gary Watts said he did not have details but expected to have more information later Friday.

USC faculty and staff that use that building are being asked to work from home.

Gambrell Hall houses USC’s history department.
