Gunman fires on School Governors

Clay Duke, 56, walked into a School Governing meeting at the Bay School District in Panama City in Florida, US on Tuesday afternoon and spray-painted a symbol on a wall before attempting to shoot the school governors with a handgun.

Duke, whose wife had lost her job in local education spending cuts, told them "I'm going to die today" before opening fire. He missed each school governor, and was shot by a security guard before killing himself.

Footage of the meeting, which was being broadcast live by a local news website, was released soon afterwards.

Ginger Littleton, a School Governor who had escaped the meeting room, was seen creeping back in behind Duke and attempting to disarm him with her handbag.
