Around midnight last night, campus police at Florida State University responded to calls about a shooting in the school’s 24/7 library. There, they shot and killed a gunman who refused to put his weapon down, and reportedly opened fire on the officers. Details of the shooting are still coming in this morning, but there are reports that three students were shot, at least one of whom is in critical condition.

According to the vice president of student affairs, at the time of the shooting, the library of the 40,000-student schooled was “packed.” FSU students inside the building tweeted photos of makeshift barricades made out of desk and shelves that they created when the gunshots broke out. Though the campus will remain open today, the school’s president has decided to cancel all classes ... Discuss

Last week, Woody Harrelson hosted SNL for the first time since 1989 and, all told, made a strong case for him being a much more regular host. It was the show's best episode in ages, featuring some social commentary, goofy antics and riveting performances from musical guest Kendrick Lamar. Surprisingly enough, it appears this SNL was actually overloaded with good content. The following sketch was performed in-studio, but cut from the actual broadcast, and it's a very sharp-but-sweet satire of Twitter and how much time we waste on it. Keep it up, SNL ... Discuss

Last week, we interviewed Kohl Crecelius, the founder and CEO of the organization Krochet Kids Int., who hinted that they were getting ready to announce an interesting new promotion today. The non-profit trains and empowers women in impoverished communities in the developing world to make their clothes and become involved in a mentorship program, while providing them with a job. The brand has been around for a few years now, but today, they are letting customers name their own price (as long as it’s over a set minimum) on items as part of their “Know Who Made It” campaign. (Everything you buy from Krochet Kids Int. also contains the handwritten name of the woman who made it.) Though the name-your-own-price model has been used on a handful of digital album releases, it’s rare to see it on traditional retail items like clothes ... Discuss

Up in Maine, a logger named Leo Moody has quietly lived for 44 years under the radar. He did his job, lived a quiet life free from the spotlight and generally just worked hard so he could rest hard. But on Monday, Moody's noble heart and great courage were required, and he handled himself in a manner becoming America's greatest hero, which he is. Moody was on his way home from work when he saw a car overturned in a lake near Kossuth Township, about 175 miles northeast of Portland. A man whose bravery is matched only by his quick thinking, Moody pulled over, dialed 911 and was then informed by a bystander that a baby was trapped in a car seat, submerged in the water.

Moody wasted not a minute, but dived into the water without hesitation, swimming into the car and using his knife to cut the car seat free ("He said he always carries the knife," the AP reports. "Usually for peeling an apple or whittling piece of alder.") He freed the 3-month-old baby, swam back to shore and handed it to Wade Shorey, a man who had pulled over just to witness a legend in the making. Moody had no time to sit around—his services were needed at home, where his unspeakably lucky wife Betsy was waiting for him

"Just another reason why I love him," Betsy told the AP. "thinking of someone other than himself" ... Discuss
