    A gunman wearing a ski mask and brandishing a rifle entered a library at the University of Texas Austin today and fired several shots before taking his own life, university officials said.
    Police are still looking for a possible second gunman, according to officials, and the campus remains on lockdown.
    There have been no reported injuries, according to officials.

    They set up this badass armored mobile command center. Terrifying. It seems most of the action has died down. No victims. The only person hurt was the gunman who killed himself.

    asshole probably bled all over my books

    It is. It was pretty chaotic for the first hour or so, but the gunman is dead, all students are safe, and SWAT is doing building-to-building searches right now.

    My gf was planning to stop by that very library today.

    I used to go to that library daily when I was a student and still have a membership and frequent it.

    wild stuff.

    If you're not a current student you have to pay for all of the sweet university library benefits. Being an alumni helps though.
