School Board Shooting, (UKPA) – A gunman killed himself after opening fire at a school board meeting in Florida, police said.

Officials said 56-year-old Clay A duke himself shot in Panama City after exchanging gunfire with the security chief Bay District. Witnesses say Duke may complain that his wife had lost her job.

Earlier reports suggested the head of school safety, Mike Jones, fired the fatal shot, but the Panama City police said, after reviewing video footage of the shooting, it was determined that the shooter s’ is shot.

Witnesses said the gunman walked to a podium at the meeting, spray-painted red “V” with a circle around it on a wall and started shooting. There were no other injuries.

About a dozen spectators were in the room as the board prepared to discuss various topics on the agenda when a large disheveled man was walking along the side of the room to the podium.

Witnesses said the man pulled out a spray paint and painted a red circle on the wall with a mark through it, then pulled out what looked like a pistol.

The gunman told everyone to leave “with the exception of those clowns behind the counter here,” referring to members of the board, a witness said Leon Walters.

School board member Ginger Littleton would have affected the shooter with his handbag and he appeared to push the ground. He then started shooting randomly and thousands of spectators fled.

The gunman was in a lively discussion with members of the board, Mr. Walters said.

“I general discussion about his wife who needed a job,” said Walters. “Or his wife had lost her job or who want a job or something like that.” Mr. Walters has heard a member say: “I’ll take your wife a job or I’ll see if I can not get him a job somewhere.”
