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. The AP cited a law enforcement official who declined to be identified because he was not authorized to release the name.

Three people have been transported to the hospital following a shooting incident at Strozier Library on Florida State University's campus in Tallahassee.

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.

Instead, the shooter fired a round at campus police, who then shot back, killing him.

The condition of the three victims who were transported to the hospital is unknown at this time.

According to university officials, the library was packed at the time of the shooting.

In a statement on the university's website, University President John Thrasher said,

The Florida State University community is extremely saddened by the shootings that took place early this morning at Strozier Library, in the very heart of campus, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of all those who have been affected.

The three students who have been injured are our highest priority followed by the needs of our greater university community. We will do everything possible to assist with their recovery.

Over the past few hours, I have received several briefings from administrators and law enforcement regarding campus safety and security, and they have established that this was an isolated incident. Florida State University and Tallahassee police departments have done an extraordinary job taking quick and decisive action to prevent further tragedy, to secure the scene and to keep campus safe. They have assured me that there is no further threat.

Thrasher has only been the president of FSU for ten days. 

FSU student Blair Stokes documented the whole chaotic experience on her Twitter:

The below video was posted on Facebook. In it,  an individual can be heard over the intercom saying "There has been a shooting in the library. Stay where you are," and instructing people to call 911 if they have been shot.
