Gunman at UT-Austin kills himself.

Police say one suspect appears to have shot himself, 2nd remains at-large


One person is dead from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the University of Texas at Austin campus, Police Chief Art Acevedo told the Austin American-Statesman newspaper.

Investigators were seeking another suspect, Acevedo added.

NBC News reported that witnesses spotted a man in a dark suit firing shots at around 8:15 a.m. local time.

The newspaper quoted university spokeswoman Rhonda Weldon as saying there was "an armed suspect in the Perry-Casteneda Library."

Citing university officials, KLBJ radio reported that a gunman had shot himself on the sixth floor of the library building.

Students who live on campus were being told to stay indoors.

KXAN said an ambulance was seen in front of the building at around 9 a.m. local time.

Charles Whitman killed 14 people and injured 32 others during a shooting rampage from the observation deck of the university's tower on Aug. 1, 1966, according to NBC News.
