Stunning video captures Florida Man opening Fire at Meeting before turning gun on himself
The footage shows Clay Duke, 56, spray painting the letter ‘V’ in red paint on the wall inside the school, which was about a revolutionary’s violent fight against a British dictatorship in
the future. It was turned into a film in 2006, before ordering everyone except six male Bay District school board members to leave the room.
Then, as news cameras that were filming the meeting continue rolling, he is seen raising his gun and pointing it straight at one board member from just a few feet away.
‘Please don’t,’ the man can be heard saying on the footage. ‘Please don’t.
Amazingly, none of the distraught man’s intended victims were hurt. The incident ended with the gunman turning his weapon on himself after he was shot by an armed security guard.
The reason believed to be Duke’s motive was the firing of his wife.
“You fired my wife,” he said to the school board leader. He then gave a dire prediction as to how things were going to end. “I’m going to die today.”
Duke never identified the job or refers to his wife by name, but argued that he was broke and would soon lose health benefits. School superintendent Bill Husfelt negotiated with him to let the other members of the board leave, taking the blame for his wife being fired.
Duke’s Facebook page contains the same image, and this “testament,” lifted from the V For Vendetta movie.
