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.

    I agree. CNN needs to step it up. I was in shock that Lohan going to jail was "breaking news" the other day, but someone shooting at my dear school is "back page" news. Anyways, my prayers are with my fellow Longhorns....

    Is there a single confirmed report that the shooter did anything but shoot himself? Did he actually threaten anyone else?

    This is all very scary. We can hear sirens, helicopters, and some even heard gunshots. I'm okay and as far as I know all of my friends are, but this is very serious. We've all been told that those who live on campus should lock their doors and stay away from doors and windows. Every building is on lockdown and all classes have been canceled. One of my friends just texted me saying a swat team just came into her classroom. It's very scary tight now.

    It's sad that Lindsay Lohan's drug addiction and Octomom are more important than this!

    I'm really disgusted that this isn't top news on here, just a little icon to click on after searching. I heard about it through a girl at work who was texted about it. Come on, get with it CNN.
