A gunman killed himself after opening fire on a Florida school board meeting. He was confronted by two school officials, one who attacked him with her purse, and another, the security chief, who fired his gun at the shooter.

Police said a 56-year-old man disrupted the the Bay District School Board meeting in Panama City, Fla., walked up to the podium, pulled out a can of red spray paint and painted a large letter “V” with a circle around it.

“The shooter approached the front of the board members, spray painted a symbol on the wall and fired an unknown amount of rounds,” said Panama City Police Department spokesman Sgt. Jeff Becker.

  15. Donkey on September 1, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    After this the board needed to increase taxes again to pay for the damage to the sheet rock and the notebook. May take a few decades for the funds to pay off both.



  16. UltimateQmazing on September 1, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    I have incredibly mixed feelings about this. But then again I’m quite a bit biased. The school board as screwed me over more times than I can count before I managed to graduate. It sucked and honestly I wouldn’t shed a tear for any of them. That’s sorta skewed my perception of how I see them.



  17. moms take over complete on September 1, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    I wonder what would happen if this happened in 2021



  18. Elias Håkansson on September 1, 2021 at 10:40 pm

  20. pongespob on September 1, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    To be fair, most school boards are assemblies of assclowns.



  21. LA NIYAH BRUMFIELD on September 1, 2021 at 10:43 pm

  22. postura_44 on September 1, 2021 at 10:44 pm

  23. Fanatic on September 1, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I shouldn’t laugh but it was kinda funny when the super intendant just said “Please don’t”



  24. NicksFluff on September 1, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Would not be surprised if the gunman severed in the stormtrooper core



  25. largeman on September 1, 2021 at 10:45 pm

  31. ashzole on September 1, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    the members on that board are corrupt and the dude was making a point.



  32. Iftekhar Ahmed on September 1, 2021 at 10:54 pm

  46. MrKayoed on September 1, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I don’t think this guy intended to kill anyone, otherwise he’d kill the old lady that attacked him to prove his point. The guy had his hands in his pocket was calm and ready to die that day.
