Police said "there appears to be no continuing threat," but responding officers will continue searching the area.
Earlier, police told ABC News there "may be other injuries" but could not confirm a number.
The college notified its students and faculty of a lockdown on Twitter, urging students not on campus to "stay way for your own safety".
A maths tutor at the college said she saw a man shoot a woman three times in the hallway of a campus building.
Nasrin Nanbakhsh said the woman was sitting in a chair when the gunman approached her and fired.
Ms Nanbakhsh said she ran into a room, locked the doors, turned off the lights and waited for help to arrive.
She said she also emailed her supervisors to let them know what was happening.
Mr McLellan said the gunman took his own life after killing the woman.
The school was closed for the rest of the day.
It is the second incident to happen at a Texas school in the past week.
Kendrex White (21) went on a stabbing rampage at the University of Texas, killing one person and seriously wounding three others.
The stabbings occurred at the university's Austin campus on Monday.
