A gunman killed two people and injured several others at a yoga studio in Florida’s state capital Tallahassee Friday before apparently taking his own life, the local police chief said.
“About 5:47pm the Tallahassee Police Department responded…in reference to a shooting,” police chief Michael DeLeo said at a press conference.
“Upon arriving on scene, the officers found multiple victims suffering from gunshot wounds.”
One of the victims was pistol-whipped, police said.
“There are indications that several people inside fought back and tried to not only save themselves but other people, which is a testament to their courage,” Mr DeLeo said.
The shooting appeared to be the act of a single person, with no further threat to the community perceived at this time, according to the police chief.
