AUSTIN, Texas — A gunman opened fire Tuesday inside a University of Texas campus library then fatally shot himself, and police are searching for a possible second suspect, university police said.

A man fired an automatic weapon on the sixth floor of the Perry-Castaneda Library early Tuesday, UT police spokeswoman Rhonda Weldon said. “He subsequently shot himself. He is deceased,” she said, adding that no one else was reported injured.

Senior Robby Reeb told ABCNews.com he was rushing through the campus late for a class when the shooting happened.

“I was walking from the business school, and a guy sprinted past me screaming, ‘There’s a guy with a gun.’ I looked up and saw a man in a ski mask, wearing a suit, and carrying an assault rifle. And I called 911.”
