4 wounded, shooter dead at Florida yoga studio

The videos contained complaints about how black people dress and speak and said women who date black men were "whores". Scott and Gillum both visited gunshot victims, including one who had been shot nine times.

Other class members then fought back and Beierle pistol-whipped one man before turning the gun on himself.

Beierle also argued against interracial relationships in the video, saying women who are in one have somehow betrayed "their blood".

"All evidence points to a single actor who has stayed on scene and is deceased at this time so there is no additional threat to the public", he said.

The videos were first reported by BuzzFeed News.

AUTHORITIES have identified the shooter at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, and the two people he killed, as disturbing facts about his past have been revealed.

The Tallahassee Democrat reported that Maura Binkley was due to graduate in May and she was studying German and editing, writing and media. Her father told the newspaper she was hoping to get a job with Teach for America. Beierle then fatally shot himself inside the studio.

Van Vessem was a veteran physician who "touched countless lives".

She was in charge of coordinating third and fourth year clerkship rotations in internal medicine at the school's medical school, according to the Florida State College of Medicine's website.

Van Vessem, 61, was a doctor who was chief medical director for Capital Health Plan, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. This is the second deadly attack by an "involuntarily celibate" in 2018.

As officers shuffled in and out of the shopping centre behind him in the early morning, Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo told reporters he did not yet know what connection, if any, Beierle had to the victims. He graduated from Florida State University and police said he had been "the subject of prior calls for service in the Tallahassee area related to harassment of young women". On Saturday, police searched Beierle's home in Deltona and his electronic devices for clues.

Prosecutors had previously dropped two charges against Bierle. Records also showed that he was banned from the campus of Florida State University in 2014.

The studio is located inside Belton Place shopping center.

Beierle was known to be violent to women, having been arrested for grabbing them in the past. Patrons fought him and prevented him from harming others before he shot and killed himself, police said.

Beierle was charged by police with battery in 2016 after he slapped and grabbed a woman's buttocks at an apartment complex pool.

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

Maura Binkley Florida State University student Maura Binkley was a "beloved sister", her sorority said.

Scott Paul Beierle, 40, posed as a customer when he walked into Hot Yoga Tallahassee on Friday evening and fired a handgun without warning, police said.

The four other victims are in a critical condition.

Police said Friday night they tentatively identified the shooter and are looking for any links between him and the victims, he added.
