University police provide update on campus shooting

University Police have confirmed the identities of the victims and suspect in a shooting that occurred on campus earlier this morning. They also have confirmed two deaths.

Larry Wallington, 48, building services manager, a victim in the shooting, was pronounced dead at the scene earlier this morning.

Henry Butler, 60, operations shift leader, also a victim, is in stable condition at the OSU Medical Center

Suspect, Nathaniel Brown, 51, custodial worker, sustained a self-inflicted gunshot at the scene and was transported to OSU Medical Center where he was pronounced dead on arrival

More than 1/2 dozen employees were working at the OSU Maintenance Building, 2000 Tuttle Park Place, when the suspect entered an office suite with a gun and began shooting. Those employees and other coworkers have been offered grief counseling.

The incident appears to be work related. Brown was hired in October 2009.
