Austin – A 19 year-old student opened fire on the campus of the University of Texas before committing suicide. As reported by NBC DFW News, Colton Tooley walked through the campus firing an AK-47 on Tuesday before entering a library and shooting himself. No one else was reportedly injured in the incident.
A purported relative of Tooley is quoted in the report as saying of the student in a prepared statement, “I want you to understand how he lived. He was a very smart guy, very intelligent, excellent student. He wouldn’t or couldn’t hurt a fly… This is a great shock to me and my family. There was nothing prior to this day, nothing that would lead any of us to believe this could take place.”
