    I can’t imagine he knew them- a 60 year old physician and a 21 yr old FSU student. Maybe.

    And from what I read there’s a restaurant under the yoga studio.

    My DH does yoga in Atlanta.Doors are locked before class starts- studio has always had that policy.

    This deeply saddens me.

    If not for that one man in the yoga studio "rushing" at the shooter, how many other victims would there have been? I shudder to think about that.

    I wish with all my heart that there had been no victims. I know we all do.

    My heart goes out to all of the victims and their loved ones.

    Interesting about the doors being locked at your DH’s studio. We don’t do that at our studio.

    So two notes of interest for me case comparison wise is this shooter’s sexual priors, as well as military history.

    This is especially horrifying for me. My sister and brother in law are both yoga instructors, who also host retreats and teacher training. They have a 15 month old son. They are the most positive, loving force in my life and I cannot fathom how someone could do this to anyone, let alone people who are practicing calm and meditation in these chaotic and tense times. How can such evil exist? Picturing my nephew losing his parents in the most vile way imaginable is too much to even dwell on.
    This news broke at the end of an already horrible day for me. Just hours before, I found a local homeless man in a parking lot overdosing and catatonic. I thought he was already dead when I called 911.
    Hug your loved ones, tell them you love them everyday, and cherish each and every moment you have.

    Per your link to the company’s website above (thank you rainy nights):

    “Hot Yoga Tallahassee. We are pleased to offer a wide variety of yoga & wellness classes including Hot Yoga, Vinyasa, Yoga Sculpt, Pilates, Hot Pilates, Yin Yoga, Aerial Yoga & more. Our Specialty Workshops explore elements such as Meditation, Anatomy, Aromatherapy, & Chakras.

    “Our Vision--

    My guess is that the shooter underestimated the “power” of these “yoga people”.

    Florida yoga studio shooting leaves 2 victims dead, 5 injured; gunman kills self

    So sad that margarita25 had to start this thread. People who attend yoga classes expect an environment of calm and serenity. Instead, attendees experienced this horrific shooting that will likely disrupt their inner peace for many months, if not years. Thoughts and prayers for those who were killed and for the survivors of this senseless attack.

    I made a little profile of him that was close with not much info. Certainly LE can come up with something for Jayme Closs!

    They may not have been the specific targets. I'm guessing the woman he shot 9 times was, but that's pure speculation, MOO.

    Every studio I have been to locks the doors right before class starts. He could have shot through it anyway, but it may be a deterrent for some.

    Local police described the crime as a 'domestic' issue. One victim was shot 9 times. wonder if this was his targeted victim and the
    rest were just collateral damage.
    Based on his prior arrests and his muscle man pictures, I'm
    sniffing an entitled control freak who's gf tossed him to the curb.
    His current address is close by me which is why I've been

    scanning the news here.

    “Hug your loved ones, tell them you love them everyday, and cherish each and every moment you have.“

    (This is like the tenth time this message has been presented in the last week through various unrelated situations...just randomly, like this guy told me the other day his friend went to go grab him some food he made as a gift, well he never made it back as he was killed in an act of violence. The guy said he was waiting and waiting for him to come back and he never did ..anyway, just saying he told me the same thing about time being short.

    Feels the like end of days sometimes.

    And I feel/sound like Chicken Little.

    @human, you mentioned that he might be an InCel, right? Turns out your hunch is likely spot-on.

    https://www.buzzfeednews.com/articl...e-yoga-shooter-incel-far-right-misogyny-video

    Scott Beierle shot two women at a Florida yoga studio on Friday night. He posted a series of videos and songs online and appeared to identify as an “involuntarily celibate." This is the second deadly attack by an “involuntarily celibate” in 2018.
    ...

    The man who shot dead two women at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, on Friday before killing himself was a far-right extremist and self-proclaimed misogynist who railed against women, black people, and immigrants in a series of online videos and songs.

    And this dude was a high school teacher in Md. for 2 years.
    Wonder if steroids or street drugs were involved.
    Something pushed him over the edge. A female's rejection?
