I read about this too. A bit off topic question - here is the link for the story I saw http://www.khou.com/news/local/texas/texas-university-has-first-known-firearm-incident-since-campus-carry-started/319650131- The picture associated with the article just looked wrong - Does this guys have his AK magazine in backwards?

Yes, he does - and what the heck does an open-carried AK have to do with campus-carry, anyway? Reeks of bias and fear-mongering.

The reporter could not find a photo of someone carrying concealed? See how good we are, they can't even find one of us carrying to photograph.

Anybody else starting to wonder how long it takes to ask "so what happened?" and release that information?

the ballistics and forensics teams are still working to rule out the possibility of multiple shooters.

Given the general fitness level of Tarleton's cops, if the elevator was out, they may still be enroute to the scene.
