An Ohio State University custodial employee who recently received a poor job review shot two co-workers inside a campus-maintenance building, killing one of them, before turning the gun on himself, officials told The Associated Press Tuesday.
Nathaniel Brown, hired last fall by the college, went to work dressed in dark clothing with two handguns in tote, campus Police Chief Paul Denton told the AP. Denton said the shooting was work-related after Brown was given a bad performance review; however, he didn't say that was the motive for the shooting.
No students were injured during the incident, and classes weren't canceled.
The shooting reportedly took place at about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. Building-services manager Larry Wallington, 48, was found dead inside the facility, while operations-shift leader Henry Butler, 60, was transported to Ohio University Medical Center and was in stable condition, according to the AP.
Meanwhile, Brown, 51, was found dead at the scene, Denton told the AP.
Denton said there were at least a half-dozen maintenance employees at the facility when the shooting occurred. The maintenance building is near a classroom building, a parking garage and Ohio Stadium, where the Buckeyes' football team play their home games.
