Here we go with those damn Floridians again…
A man who was fired from a private school on Tuesday returned to campus with a gun hidden in a guitar case and shot the headmistress to death before committing suicide, authorities said.
No students were injured.
Officers responded to the Episcopal School of Jacksonville at 1:23 p.m. Tuesday after receiving reports of a person with a gun, and the school was placed on lockdown. When officers arrived, Dale Regan, head of the school, and the gunman were found dead, Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt said.
“Today we have truly lost a great educator and an advocate for all children,” said Barbara Hodges, executive director of the Florida Council of Independent Schools.
The sheriff’s office identified the gunman as 28-year-old Shane Schumerth. No further information on him was immediately available.
Regan worked at the Episcopal School for more than 30 years, starting as a teacher and going on to become the first female to hold the school’s top position. Hodges said she focused on high academic standards but also valued strong relationships with students and teachers.
R.I.P. Dale Regan. WTF is in the water in Florida?!?!
