UPDATE (12:00 p.m.): The Associated Press is reporting that the shooter was Myron May, a lawyer who graduated from Florida State before attending Texas Tech University's law school.

Police responded to a call at 12:30 a.m. about an active shooter on campus. FSU officers confronted the shooter on the steps of the library and told him to drop his weapon.
