Suspected University of Texas-Austin gunman dead

A suspected gunman fired shots inside a library at the University of Texas at Austin on Tuesday morning before shooting himself, university spokeswoman Rhonda Weldon told CNN.

The gunman died, Weldon said. No one else was hurt.

On its Facebook page, the university police said they were searching for a possible second suspect.

Weldon said it was not known whether that second suspect was armed.

Students and others on campus were advised to remain indoors with their doors locked.

    Truly sad. My prayers go out to the students. I hope the shooter had a heart before he pulled the trigger on students just trying to study. I spent most of my time at the UGL, but the PCL is the main student library.

ALL stories are important not just american stories. people in this country need to learn that ALL people are important, this egotistical thinking is just sad

    Thanx to APD and UT police it wasnt another Whitmam incident. My prayers go out to this boys family. APD Chief Acevedo said they would have taken him out given the chance.

    This is amazing how nobody is talking about how this stuff would not happen if they all had guns they would have killed him first. This guy here said it good and also CNN it knows it should tell us this.
