A Gunman Opened Fire at a School Board Meeting in Florida . . . Then Shot Himself After Being Wounded by a Security Guard
56-year-old Clay Duke took six hostages during a board meeting in Panama City, Florida yesterday, before exchanging gunfire with a security guard and killing himself. He waited until the point in the meeting when people were allowed to ask questions. Then, in a reference to the movie "V for Vendetta", he spray-painted a giant "V" on the wall, pulled out a gun, and told everyone but six male school board members to leave.
A few minutes later, a female school board member snuck up behind him and tried to knock the gun away with her purse. It didn't work, and she fell to the ground. But luckily Duke didn't hurt her, and even let her leave the room. Not long after that, he pointed his gun at one of the hostages and started firing at close range. Amazingly, all four shots missed. Then he exchanged fire with a security guard . . . fell to the ground wounded . . . and shot himself in the head.
Warning.....This Video shows him being shot, but not the suicide.
