COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gunshots can be heard in a 911 call describing a rampage that ended in the death of an Ohio State university ex-employee who killed himself inside the campus’ contemporary art museum.

A security supervisor at the Wexner Center for the Arts called 911 and described the unfolding action Sunday. The supervisor told a city police dispatcher that a man was “marking up the art and shooting.”

The caller was then transferred to university police where he told a dispatcher a short time later that the man had shot himself in the head.

No one else was injured in the shooting on the Columbus campus.

The university on Monday identified the shooter as 63-year-old Dean Sturgis, a former security guard who resigned in 2009 to avoid being fired.
