Update on Shooter Tuesday 09/28 on University-of-Texas-Austin (UT) Campus
So far just one casualty--he himself.

The whole campus is on lockdown and closed today, though.

There were rumours of a second shooter who is being sought now throughout the 40 acres of the downtown Austin, TX campus.

So far this is much better than the 1966 shooting in which a shooter fired from the top of the famous orange tower, during the day, killing and wounding at least a dozen students on the plaza below him, including, before he ascended the tower, his own wife and child.

I am a UT alumnus and currently live in Austin, so I will bring more news of this as it is released.

Re: Update on Shooter Tuesday 09/28 on University-of-Texas-Austin (UT) Campus
The following update is being written two days after incident, being written Thursday 4:12 pm 09/30.

This incident was (fortunately) contained. We are at least not learning of any other casualties other than the shooter himself through local news media. All seems back to Normal at the UT campus and in Austin.

One of the technological saving graces was the texting alerts that went out to all students who had signed up for it, saving them the trouble of a trip to campus when the campus had been locked down and all classes and activities closed while the campus was secured.

I guess we will slowly hear the details of the shooter's motivations and thinking processes, etc.

The TV late news last night showed UT students holding prayer vigils and using the scare to get to know one another better and get closer to God.

All in all the most positive outcome that could have been hoped from a shooting incident on a school or campus.

Yea! Longhorns! BEAT OU this SATURDAY!
