Revelation 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).
A gunman who was slain by police shot three students shortly after midnight Thursday at Florida State University’s main library.
Police say that hundreds of students were studying for exams at Strozier Library when the gunman began his attack. The assailant was shot when he refused to drop his weapon.
The gunman has been identified as Myron May, a lawyer who graduated from FSU before attending Texas Tech University law school and being admitted to the Texas State Bar in 2010. He had been working as “in-house counsel” for a children’s home in the area.
“He’s just a boy our kids grew up with that we let stay in one of our guest houses for a while,” Abigail Taunton, who runs the home, told the Associated Press. “He’s moving back home from Texas and we were trying to help him get on his feet.”
“This person just for whatever reason produced a handgun and then began shooting students in the library,” FSU Police Chief David Perry said. Perry characterized the shooting as an “isolated incident” but did not release many details.
