Hot yoga gunman Scott Paul Beierle had prior arrests for touching women

Police Man Killed 1 at Florida Yoga Studio 4 Critically Wounded

Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said at a media briefing that four people were in critical condition following the shooting.

"There were indications that several people not only fought back but tried to save other people", DeLeo told reporters, confirming that one man was pistol-whipped.

Two women - a 61-year-old faculty member at Florida State University, and a 21-year-old FSU student - were fatally shot.

Binkley was a student at Florida State University and Van Vessem was a faculty member at the university's medical school, CNN affiliate WCTV reported. One woman said in a police report that Beierle grabbed her while she was at a soda fountain and she "thought it may have been her boyfriend at first".

The Tallahassee Police Department says five have been shot and one has died after a Friday afternoon shooting near Bradford Road and Thomasville Road.

DeSantis said the shooting was heartbreaking, and that he and his wife were praying for the victims. "But it's important that people understand there is no immediate threat outside of what has already occurred here this evening".

Authorities said there were signs members of the class had confronted Beierle after he opened fire inside the studio and then pistol-whipped one of them. Police said two other victims were in stable condition, and three had been released from the hospital.

"You don't think about this in Tallahassee and now you have to", Welling told The Associated Press.

DeLeo said investigators were unable to draw a connection immediately between the gunman and either of the deceased.

"There are no words to express the shock and grief we feel after learning of the deaths of Maura Binkley and Dr. Nancy Van Vessem".

"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".

Big Bend Hospice in Tallahassee shared a tribute to Van Vessem on its Facebook page, calling the doctor "a physician and leader who touched countless lives as Chief Medical Officer at Capital Health Plan".

"I'm deeply appreciative of law enforcement's quick response to the shooting at the yoga facility in Tallahassee today", Mayor Andrew Gillum wrote on Twitter.

"The truth is that these occurrences have become far too frequent in our society", Gillum said.

"I will remain in constant communication with law enforcement".

Gillum met the victims Friday night after he returned from a Shabbat service in South Florida honoring the 11 people killed in a Pittsburgh synagogue last weekend. On it, he posted songs with lyrics describing violence against women, with one song, complaining about "the girl I can't get in the sack", posted just hours before the shooting. 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".

"Casey and I are praying for the families", he said.
