(CNN) -- A man apparently angry over a poor performance evaluation entered an Ohio State University maintenance building early Tuesday and opened fire, killing a manager before turning the gun on himself, police said.

Larry Wallington, 48, a building services manager at the OSU Maintenance Building, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 3:30 a.m. ET shooting, Ohio State University Police Chief Paul Denton said. Wallington was a 10-year university employee, he said.

Authorities found suspect Nathaniel Brown, 51, a custodial worker, suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot at the scene, Denton said. He was transported to the Ohio State University Medical Center, where he was dead on arrival.


-----------

An AP report said heavily armed OSU police were on the scene, I find this interesting because when I went to Ohio State I never once saw a heavily armed police officer. I am guessing they were somewhat of a swat team. The Ohio State campus has their own police, but it is mostly traffic patrol and single police officers, I wonder how quickly they were able to send heavily armed OSU guards to the area.
