UPDATE: Thanks to public assistance, Texas State University Police have identified the suspect and are questining him. UPD Chief Raph Meyer would like to express his appreciation for the assistance and support received from the community.


Texas State University Police are seeing information on the suspect who made a threat at Tower Hall early the morning of Oct. 25, and have released security camera images of the individual.

Further investigation revealed the subject  was hanging around the Tower east door at approximately 3 a.m. waiting for the door to be opened. The subject piggy-backed in on a resident of Tower Hall. While inside he made comments that it would be easy to gain entrance to the resident hall, the building being all glass. It would be easy to get in and harm people without anyone knowing.

The subject was wearing a black button down shirt, blue jeans, black tennis shoes and a black baseball cap turned backwards with a decal and writing on the back of the cap.

The same subject was seen walking the halls at San Jacinto Hall on the 4th floor at approximately 3:30 a.m.

University Police advise people in the area exercise caution. If anyone has information regarding this incident, notify University Police immediately at (512) 245-2805.
