According to the Associated Press, an emergency call was placed at around 8 a.m. ET on Monday concerning an active gunman on campus. WRAL News reported that the suspect was seen carrying a long rifle, and authorities have yet to officially release any details concerning the weapon.

The library shooting victim has since died, City Manager Scott Stevens confirmed.

Authorities put out a bulletin shortly after the searching for a bald, white male with a tattoo over his left eye, and later identified their suspect as Kenneth Morgan Stancil III, a 30-year-old former student.

Police were still searching for Stancil eight hours after the Monday morning shooting, but said the campus would open as usual on Tuesday, albeit with extra security.
