Identities released in yoga studio shooting

The man who shot and killed two women in a yoga studio in Tallahassee on Friday appears to have posted racist and misogynistic videos online.

Beirele had been previously arrested for grabbing women although the charges were eventually dropped.

Tallahassee police identified the shooter as Scott Paul Beierle, 40. Both were part of the Florida State University community. Police have also obtained multiple search warrants on his electronic devices and social media profiles.

CNN has seen the videos The New York Times reported on, but has not independently verified that the man in the videos is the gunman identified by police.

'To lose one of our students and one of our faculty members in this tragic and violent way is just devastating to the Florida State University family. A university police report shows that Beierle told police he may have accidentally bumped into someone, but denied grabbing anyone. "You don't think about this in Tallahassee and now you have to", Welling told The Associated Press. The charges were dismissed in May 2013, court records show.

In real life, records show, he had a history of harassing women and was accused of touching women's buttocks without their consent. Get the latest top stories, current affairs, sports, business, entertainment, politics, astrology, spirituality, and many more here only on ABP News.

BuzzFeed first reported the existence of the videos, which were posted to YouTube in 2014.

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.

Scott Paul Beierle then fatally shot himself inside the studio. His likeness matches that of a man in a video expressing hate towards black people.


There is not yet much detail about Beierle and his motive is unknown. Combs said she embraced a woman who couldn't stop hyperventilating.

The police statement says, "Patrons fought the assailant to prevent him from harming themselves and others". Police have not yet said what kind of gun he used. "If you didn't know it was there, you basically wouldn't know [about the studio]".

In the videos, Beierle pontificated from a dimly lit bedroom, with an unmade bed and a pile of cardboard boxes in the background.

"Incels" are misogynists who blame women for their inability to enter a healthy sexual relationship, rather than their own failings.

The Tallahassee incident appears to be the second incel-related mass murder in 2018, after a man killed 10 people in Toronto by driving a van into a crowd in April.

"They were very emotional". "There are whores in - not only every city, not only every town, but every village", he said, referring to women in interracial relationships, whom he said had betrayed "their blood".

Detectives were looking for any links between the gunman and the victims, he said.

This year, the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate crimes and hate groups, added "male supremacy" to the list of ideologies it tracks on its "hate map".
