Florida Yoga Studio Shooting Suspect Was A Far-Right Misogynist

Police received 911 calls about a shooting at 5:37 p.m. Friday - minutes after a hot yoga flow class was scheduled to begin, according to the studio's website. Since the gunman killed himself, Miller says, "We can only go by what was left behind".

Two other women were in stable condition in the hospital. The shooter has been identified.

"She was an outstanding physician with a passion for access to health care", said Pam Irwin, the executive director of Capital Medical Society, a Tallahassee-based professional organization for physicians, of which Van Vessem was a member.

Scott Paul Beierle, 40, opened fire at the yoga studio in Tallahassee on Friday evening, killing 21-year-old Maura Binkley and 61-year-old Van Vessem before wounding five others and killing himself, officials said. "We feel this loss profoundly and we send our deepest sympathies to Maura's and Nancy's loved ones while we pray for the recovery of those who were injured".

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is the Democratic nominee for governor, tweeted that he's breaking off the campaign trail to return to Tallahassee.

Other victims, barefoot from their yoga class, came into the bar in clear shock and barely able to speak, except to say the word "shooter", the newspaper reported. Mann also noted that the "incel" brand of misogyny is often connected to racial panic: He said that while men of all ethnicities have been involved in the incel community, "at least for a good number of them, these more misogynistic movements can often be an entry point into the more racialized or anti-Semitic branches of the alt-right".

"We just heard "pow, pow, pow, pow", he said.

The man who shot and killed two women in a yoga studio in Tallahassee on Friday appears to have posted racist and misogynistic videos online.

But as bad as that situation was, a worse tragedy may have been averted thanks to the quick actions of an unidentified man who charged the shooter.

"There were indications that several people not only fought back but tried to save other people", Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said at a news conference.

The gunman appeared to have acted alone and there was no immediate threat to the Tallahassee community, DeLeo said.

A total of seven victims have been identified: six gunshot victims, and one pistol whipped victim.

The suspect fatally shot himself, DeLeo said.

Bob Mosier, county schools spokesman, said personnel records show Beierle taught English and social studies. The woman said she declined the offer and, according to an affidavit, Beierle then slapped her on the buttocks and grabbed her. However, since the 2012 battery charges were dropped, Meggs said, it would have been routine for Beierle to receive a deferred prosecution deal.

Court records indicate prosecutors agreed to dismiss the battery charge after Beierle completed a six-month diversion agreement requiring him to stay out of trouble, not drink alcohol to excess and to follow a psychologist's recommendations.
