Florida State gunman was a former BigLaw associate

Posted By Administration, Friday, November 21, 2014

The gunman who shot three people early Thursday at Florida State University has been identified as a lawyer who attended the school as an undergraduate, police told the Associated Press.

The gunman was shot and killed by campus police after shooting three people at the university’s library. Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo identified the gunman as Myron May, who graduated from Florida State, according to the AP story. He graduated from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2009, TTU’s office of communications and marketing confirmed to Texas Lawyer (sub. req.)

May was a former associate at Andrews Kurth, the Houston Chronicle reports in a story noted by Above the Law. Andrews Kurth confirmed to the Chronicle that May had worked at the firm and was no longer working there, but could not release when his tenure there began and ended.

One of the individuals shot early Thursday was hospitalized in critical condition and the other was in fair condition, the Miami Herald reports. The third person was grazed by a bullet and treated at the scene.
