Gunman Dead After School Board Shooting

A gunman at a Panama City, Florida school board meeting on Tuesday afternoon started to randomly open fire until finally turning the gun on himself. The assailant, later identified as Clay A. Duke, was initially sitting in the back of the meeting, where one witness said he didn't appear agitated. He then walked up to the podium, possibly cursing, and spray painted the letter “V” on the wall surrounded by a large circle. After the gunman told everyone but the males in the room to leave, he began to open fire. Witnesses suggest he may have been upset about his wife losing her job.
