Ohio State University says an employee shot two co-workers in a campus maintenance building, killing one of them, and then fatally shot himself.

University Police Chief Paul Denton identify the suspect as 51-year-old Nathaniel Brown, a custodial employee. Denton says Brown recently received a poor performance evaluation, but he declined to say if that was a motive for the shooting.

No students were hurt.

Denton says Brown was pronounced dead at Ohio State University Medical Center several hours after the shooting, which was first reported at 3:30 a.m. today.

One of the victims, 48-year-old building services manager Larry Wallington, died at the scene. The other is hospitalized in stable condition.
