A US community college has reopened as police search for a gunman who killed one man and wounded two others in a car park at the edge of campus.

Authorities said one victim was pronounced dead at the scene, another was taken to hospital and is expected to survive, and the third was grazed by a bullet.

Their names and ages have not been released. Two of the victims were students at the school.
