AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Police have identified the man who opened fire on the University of Texas campus before killing himself as a 19-year-old student from Austin.

Police said Tuesday that the gunman was Colton Tooley. College records indicate Tooley was a sophomore math major. His parents did not immediately respond to a message left by The Associated Press.

No other injuries were reported. Police said they believe Tooley acted alone.

Campus police said earlier in the day that a man fired an automatic weapon on the sixth floor of the Perry-Castaneda Library, then shot himself dead.
