According to Gawker's Adam Weinstein, the unidentified shooter in question reportedly had a standoff with area police which students on scene indicate ended with the police opening fire on the suspect:
He heard cops scream "DROP THE WEAPON." Then more shots. "They lit him up, like 30 shots," student says. (2/?) — Adam Weinstein (@AdamWeinstein) November 20, 2014
To recap: early witness reports say police have shot & likely killed a shooter on FSU campus by main library. Police: "Dangerous situation." — Adam Weinstein (@AdamWeinstein) November 20, 2014
Per Weinstein, area authorities are cordoning off the scene and attempting to disperse gatherers around the library.
According to multiple reports, a shooter opened fire inside Florida State's Strozier Library early on Thursday morning. Here is the first official alert sent out by the university after midnight Tallahassee time:

Adam Weinstein of Gawker indicates that several first responders are already on campus in Tallahassee:
In addition, one person trapped in the library during the reported shooting tweeted this out minutes after the FSU alert was sent to students on campus:
Please say a prayer for us. We're stuck in a library with a shooter in the building. #FSU — Nate (@nate2usmc) November 20, 2014
