FSU Shooting Update: Shooter Myron May Sent Packages To Facebook Friends, Ranted About Driving While Black

As reported by Learn U, several students at FSU were wounded in a shooting that began outside of Strozier Library on the FSU campus.

The Inquisitr also links to the now-removed Myron May Facebook page, whereby the Google cache of the FSU shooting culprit’s rants can be seen below.

“Speaking from personally having experienced about 10 DWBs (Driving While Black), YOU DON’T GET MEDIA COVERAGE FOR IMPROPER POLICE CONDUCT UNLESS YOU DIE.”

The first Google cache of the FSU shooting offender was posted on August 19, with a list of three incidents with the police that May wrote made him angry.

“Hats off to my buddy… who appeared out of nowhere when an officer was about to arrest me in Tallahassee b/c according to him, he ran my license plate, and his driver’s license check indicated that my DL was suspended (it was not). In light of the fact that his DL check also indicated that I was a white male, you’d think that he would have questioned the accuracy of his info. Nope!”

The shooting at FSU was carried out by a man who went on to detail more incidences of being pulled over in Katy, Texas, and Lubbock.

“Thankfully, I’ve never been beaten or killed. But to my friends that think this sort of thing doesn’t happen in today’s world, please don’t be that naive. It happens everyday. I wish I could explain the degree of rage, frustration, resentment, and bitterness that you feel after having one of these experiences, but I don’t know that ordinary language is even comprehensive enough to convey that idea.”

The other Facebook posts from the FSU shooting offender are more innocuous, with the shooting culprit posting a Bible quote on November 18 and an earlier reference to relatives who died posted on August 2 – well before the shooting at FSU.

“Uncle Cornelius, Aunt Gracie, Aunt Stella, and now Aunt Ada….my goodness Father. When it rains, it pours. Please slow down taking away my loved ones.”

Beyond expressions of grief, it appears May was dealing with feelings of paranoia. According to the below video from WESH, May called police to report hearing voices after he took a bubble bath. Prior to the shooting at FSU, May reportedly sent packages to at least eight Facebook friends.

The Tallahassee government’s website is posting updates about the FSU shooting on their website, with more detailed history into the FSU shooting culprit’s academic history at FSU prior to the shooting.
