The gunman who shot three people at Florida State University’s library before being killed by police was a lawyer who graduated from the college, a law enforcement official said.
The official said the attacker was Myron May, who graduated from Florida State before attending Texas Tech University’s law school. May was fatally shot yesterday after he shot three people at the Florida State library. Two are hospitalised and one has been released.
The shooting happened about 12.30am, sending hundreds of students who had been up all night studying for exams scrambling for cover in the book aisles and barricading themselves in with desks. Three students were wounded before police killed the gunman in a shootout, authorities said.
Police called the shooting an isolated incident, but have not released many details, including how far May made it into Strozier Library.
