This is one of the most disturbing pieces of video footage, I’ve seen. Everyone is okay so you can watch guilt free, but holy shit. It’s scary.
Averted Tragedy of the Day: A disturbed man named Clay Duke, who labeled himself a “Freedom Fighter,” entered Bay District Schools’ Nelson building in Panama City, Florida, this afternoon, where he eventually spray-painted a wall with the V for Vendetta logo, and then aimed a gun at members of the school board firing a shot at each one. Luckily, he missed every target.
Mike Jones, chief of security for the school system and a retired police officer, exchanged fire with Duke, who was wounded and rolled to the ground. Duke turned his gun on himself, dying of a fatal gunshot to the head, authorities said. […]
Police have a solid lead on Duke’s motive, [Panama City PD Sgt. Jeffrey] Becker said, but were not prepared Tuesday night to release it.
The investigation includes Duke’s assertions that his wife had been terminated by the school district. Police were talking with Duke’s wife, Becker said.
A video of the incident that was captured by a live feed can be seen above. Naturally, it is slightly graphic, though Duke’s suicide is not shown.
