3 dead, including shooter, at Florida yoga studio

07 November 2018

In videos posted to YouTube in 2014, the man appeared resentful toward women who wouldn't date him and made derogatory remarks about interracial relationships, according to a report from The New York Times. In another video, the man complained about an "invasion" from Central America, while in another he ranted about the women who he said had caused him to become a misogynist.

Beierle got control of the gun again and hit him with it, he said, adding that he then grabbed a broom and struck Beierle, giving some people time to flee.

The videos were first reported by BuzzFeed News.

Two women killed by a gunman who burst into a yoga class at a Florida shopping center were named on Saturday as a student and faculty member from Florida State University.

Binkley spent this past summer studying at the University of Wuppertal in Germany, the website said, and she found the experience "so rewarding".

"Maura truly lived a life really devoted to peace, love and caring for others", her father, Jeff Binkley, told CNN affiliate WSB.

City spokesman Jamie Van Pelt said the shooting appeared to be part of a domestic dispute, but the shooter is yet to be identified by police.

Scott Beierle, who shot and killed two women at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida on Friday, was a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, far-right extremist, it has been revealed. Beierle then fatally shot himself inside the studio. In April, a 25-year-old Canadian who said he was a soldier in an "incel" rebellion used a rented van to kill 10 people in Toronto.

Van Vessem, 61, was a doctor who was chief medical director for Capital Health Plan, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

Tallahassee police chief Michael DeLeo told reporters "there were indications that several people not only fought back but tried to save other people". On Saturday, police searched Beierle's home in Deltona as well as his electronic devices in hopes of finding any clues about a possible motive.

The 2012 incident happened in a dining hall on Florida State's campus.

In that case, Tallahassee police records show, Beierle was arrested after he approached a woman sunbathing at a pool and complimented her on her figure. Records show that the charges were eventually dismissed after Beierle followed the conditions of a deferred prosecution agreement.

An FSU police report showed that Beierle told police he may have accidentally bumped into someone, but denied grabbing anyone.

The two slain Friday were a student and faculty member at Florida State University, according to university officials.

Police said the shooting suspect, Scott Paul Beierle, 40, killed himself minutes before they arrived at the Hot Yoga studio, which sits above a row of restaurants at a northern Tallahassee, Florida, shopping centre.

The four other victims are in a critical condition.

"There are no words to express the shock and grief we feel", John Thrasher, the president of Florida State University, said on Twitter on Saturday.
