Three people were injured when a gunman opened fire at the Florida State University campus in Tallahassee on Wednesday night, before the shooter was later killed by campus police. According to reports, the gunman opened fire inside the university’s Strozier Library. Two of the shooting victims were taken to Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare — one was in critical condition; the other in stable condition, said hospital official Stephanie Derzypolski.
