Columbus, OH (AP) -- Ohio State University Police Chief Paul Denton has identified the suspect in Tuesday's shooting at Ohio State University as 51-year-old Nathanial 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.

One of the victims, 48-year-old Building Services Manager Larry Wallington, died at the scene. The other is hospitalized in stable condition.
