A gunman shot three students at a Florida State campus library early Thursday morning before being killed by police.* One student is in critical condition at a Tallahassee hospital, another is in good condition, and the third was treated and released at the scene. From the Tallahassee Democrat:

The lone gunman was confronted by officers at the front of the library shortly after shots were reported. Officers with the Tallahassee Police Department and FSU Police Department ordered the man to drop his weapon, but he fired at them instead. Officers returned fire, killing the man, who has not been identified.

“More than 300 students” were in Strozier Library at 12:30 a.m. when the shooting occurred. The shooter’s motive is as of yet unknown.
