Man fought back during yoga studio shooting with a broom

  • 5 shot at FL yoga studio 1 dead

Police identified the two killed as Nancy Van Vessem, 61, and Maura Binkley, 21.

The Tallahassee Democrat reported that a man who was in a nearby bar said people entered the establishment seeking assistance and said that a man was inside the yoga studio, called "Hot Yoga", and was acting odd before he opened fire during a class. In a series of videos posted over a three-day period in August 2014, he ranted against women and minorities, the police and the Army - anyone and everyone who he believed had wronged him.

Both governor Rick Scott and Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for governor, broke off from the campaign trail to return to Tallahassee. He was a graduate of Florida State, where he had been arrested at least twice, once on charges of battery against women, according to records and the police.

The gunman, who was already dead when officers arrived, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the police chief said in a statement Saturday.

Police did not give more details on incidents involving Beierle and young women.

Citing court records, the Tallahassee Democrat reported that Beierle had a history of arrests for grabbing women.

Beierle, of Deltona, a city near Florida's Atlantic coast more than 200 miles from Tallahassee, had been staying at a local hotel.

Police said two other victims were in stable condition, and three had been released from the hospital.

Tallahassee Memorial Hospital has confirmed they were treating five people with gunshot wounds, before one passed away.

"There is no immediate threat to our community", said Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo at a Friday evening at a news conference.

A gunman killed two people and wounded others at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, on Friday evening before apparently fatally shooting himself, officials said.

"To lose one of our students and one of our faculty members in this tragic and violent way is just devastating to the Florida State University family".

She was in charge of coordinating third and fourth year clerkship rotations in internal medicine at the school's medical school, according to the Florida State College of Medicine's website.

Binkley, a senior with an English and German double major, was from Dunwoody, a suburb of Georgia, according to the Miami Herald.

After spending the summer studying in Germany, Binkley was back for what would have been her a year ago in school. "But in the end, the experience is so rewarding and makes the world seem so small".

Tallahassee's murder rate has been an issue in the governor's race, with Gillum's opponent Republican former U.S. Representative Ron DeSantis accusing him of being weak on crime. "No act of gun violence is acceptable", he wrote on Twitter.

The motive is still unknown, police said.

Tallahassee City Commissioner Scott Maddox called the shooting a "senseless act of evil" and the "worst" scene he had been on in his public service career. This is the worst.

In a statement posted to its Facebook page, the Delta Delta Delta sorority called Binkley a "beloved sister".
