Colton Tooley, 19, was a mathematics sophomore at the University of Texas and reports are saying that he acted alone.

Colton Joshua Tooley, wearing a dark suit and a ski mask, opened fire with an assault rifle Tuesday on the University of Texas campus before fleeing into a library and fatally shooting himself, authorities said. No one else was hurt.

* He was 19 years old.

* He was pursuing a bachelor’s degree in mathematics at the College of Natural Sciences.

* His address is listed as 3209 Western Drive, Austin, Texas 78745. The Statesman reports that ‘the street, a cul de sac, is blocked off with police tape at the corner. There are two police cruisers blocking the street, a crime-scene truck and an unmarked police car.’


It looks like he lived with his mother, Idalia Tooley (who names Colton as her only child on her Facebook page), and who ran a day care center out of the house, according to Austin Day Cares, a local database, which lists both her name and the address of the home.

Surge Desk has reached out to the family but has not yet received a response.

He graduated from Crockett High School in 2009, My Fox New York reports.
