Florida State University authorities said a gunman wounded three students, one critically, very early on Thursday when he opened fire in a library where hundreds of students were studying for exams. Reuters went to the scene:

Officers confronted the attacker soon after 12:30 a.m. near the entrance to Florida State’s Strozier Library in the latest of a string of shootings on U.S. campuses. Police said they ordered him to drop his weapon, then fatally shot him when he fired on them.

Authorities have not released the identity of the male shooter or the names of the three students who were shot. One was treated at the scene for a graze wound and released, and two were taken to a local hospital, Tallahassee police said.

One victim was critical and the other was in good condition, said a spokeswoman at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare hospital.

Police were investigating the shooter’s motive.

“Just like any tragedy, the ultimate question – why? – will never have an answer that satisfies those whose loved ones have been injured or killed,” said Florida Governor Rick Scott at a news conference.

Campus security was increased and classes were canceled on Thursday.
