Florida State Shooter Went from Liked to Troubled
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State University is expected to resume classes one day after a graduate opened fire at the library.
Meanwhile, friends of shooter Myron May are trying to figure out how he changed from being a well-liked young attorney to a would-be killer, stopped only by a fusillade of police bullets. Police killed May early Thursday.
May is a 2005 graduate of Florida State who later earned a law degree from Texas Tech University. Earlier this year, he was trying small cases as a rookie prosecutor in New Mexico.
But he was also beginning to fall apart. The 31-year-old May posted links to information on alleged government mind-reading on his Facebook page and believed the government was spying on him. He also made rambling statements to the police and a former girlfriend.
