Myron May, the Florida State University alumnus and attorney who shot three people at the school's library early Thursday, believed the government was targeting him for persecution, detailing his thoughts in a journal and videos that detectives obtained, authorities said. May had “expressed fears of being targeted and that he wanted to bring attention to this issue of targeting,” said Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo. “Mr. May was in a state of crisis.” Police killed May, a 2005 graduate who later earned a law degree from Texas Tech University, early Thursday. May had wounded two students and an employee and reloaded a .380 semi-automatic pistol. He refused to put the gun down and police opened fire.
