BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Police say they shot a homeless man on the Florida Atlantic University campus.

The incident Friday morning occurred on the rooftop of a building on the north side of FAU's Boca Raton campus.

Authorities said the man was armed with a knife. He is hospitalized, but his condition has not been released.

The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/UKtKlm ) reports the shooting didn't prompt any evacuation or lockdown. Police called it an isolated incident.
