The Florida State University community is still in shock over the killing of three people and wounding of others on campus. The bar was rocked today with the news that the alleged killer was one of our own, FSU graduate and attorney Myron May. May’s final post on Facebook was the biblical verse, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
May graduated from FSU before going on to get his law degree from Texas Tech University. He served on the law review at Texas Tech. He was shot and killed by campus police during his rampage at the Strozier Library on campus about 12:30 a.m. on Thursday.
Five officers stopped May outside the building.
A former roommate and friend said that she was sent a cryptic message from May that he had sent her a package shortly before the rampage. She has no idea what the package contains.
New reports indicate that May thought that he was being watched or filmed by police. An ex-girlfriend said that May handed her a piece of a car and said it was a camera the police had put in his vehicle. He reportedly was diagnosed with ADHD and was on prescription medications.
She also told police May had been diagnosed with ADHD and was using prescription medication to overcome the condition, according to the police report.
According to his Facebook site, he was a devout Christian who also studied at Gulf Coast State College. He lists his current position as the “In-house Legal Counsel at Taunton Family Children’s Home.”
He was born in Dayton, Ohio, and lived Wewahitchka, Florida.
In one posting, May left the following statement:
