AUSTIN, TX [OCA], September 30, 2010
The gunman, a 19-year-old math major, fired randomly from an AK-47 as he ran through the campus Tuesday morning before shooting himself to death in the Perry-Castaneda Library. No other injuries were reported, but police locked down the sprawling campus earlier as they checked reports of a second gunman.
"Regrettably the instances of violence occuring on college campuses have increased in recent years," said an OCF spokesperson. "OCF offers its prayers and support to those affected by this event and has begun taking steps to address the situation."
