BREAKING: Three Shot By Gunman In Florida State University Library

Screen Shot 2014-11-20 at 1.25.56 AM

Several minutes ago we were made aware of a shooting on the campus of Florida State University. Early reports state that two people were shot in the university’s Strozier Library and the school has locked down the dormitories and a second campus library.

Students have been tweeting pictures, reports, and condolences throughout the last hour.







A YouTube video has already emerged of students huddled between rows of bookshelves. A man can be heard speaking over the intercom, announcing a shooting in the library and requesting students to stay put and only contact authorities should they have a victim or valuable information.

There are conflicting reports on the status of the gunman. Some, such as FSUNews.com, are reporting that the gunman is in police custody. However, some social media users claim he was shot and killed by police.


CNN International has already interviewed an eye witness to the shooting.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims. We will update this article as more information becomes available.

***UPDATE 3:27a.m. CT***

CNN is reporting a third person was shot in the library. They have also confirmed that the gunman was shot and killed by campus police.
