Dudes, I woke up to alarms this morning and texts about an armed subject loose on campus. Apparently there was a shooting about an hour ago in a library barely a minutes walk away from my dorm.

I probably wouldn't be in the pit, and be a cowering little baby if I was you, but hey that's just me

And this is just about to turn into a huge Texas/guns discussion out of nowhere.

“The shooter is dead on the sixth floor of Perry-Castañeda Library, said Don Hale, a UT spokesman. “No identification. Apparently took his own life.”

Apparently he saved the day by him self.

Not to sound inconsiderate, but isn't this like, the 5th University of (insert state/city name) shooting in the last few years?
'cause right now, it feels like the world's strangest game of bingo.

Yeah. Charles Whitman snapped in 1966, killed his Wife and Mother and then killed 16 and wounded 30 people with a rifle from the university tower before he was killed.

No news on any victims so far is a good sign.

Well they have us on lock-down in the dorms so we can't really go anywhere.

TS, get behind a table.
Stay in your room, whatever!

Also, warn your friends!

Unless they're trapped in a ninja like situation somewhere near the gunman, where calling them would reveal their location to him.

Ha I've been here for just over a month. Early this morning I actually had a very eerie dream about groups of people shooting each other. I just remember the scene being very chaotic. Damn my lucid dreaming practices.

Thats the one. If it turns out this guy had a tumor, there must be something in the water in Austin.

This is all over the news by now - just read about it from the Washington Post. Latest update I have is that the guy shot himself. Everyone OK down there?

I'd argue with Jdawg but this really doesn't seem like the right time.

You really have no respect, do you? You've made nothing but idiotic posts in a thread about an armed gunman entering a university.
