Police received a call about an “armed subject” at the Strozier Library on the school’s main campus in Tallahassee at 12.30 a.m. ET. Officers confronted the gunman and ordered him to drop his weapon, according to Tallahassee Police spokesman Dave Northway. “The suspect did not comply with the commands and shot at the officers,” he added. “They returned fire and the suspect was killed.”
