    Scott Paul Beierle (Deltona, Florida), 40, killed two people, injured five, shot self

    Who is Scott Beierle? Tallahassee Yoga Studio Shooter Previously Arrested for Groping Women

    Scott Paul Beierle killed two people and injured five others when he opened fire on a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, on Friday evening, police said. Six people suffered gunshot wounds and one was pistol whipped in the attack at Hot Yoga Tallahassee. Beierle killed himself in the incident, according to Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo. The gunman's LinkedIn profile said he had been a "job seeker" since 2013. The account said that he graduated from State University of New York at Binghamton with a degree in political science and government in 2002 and that he obtained master degrees in ...


    He served as an English teacher between 2005 and 2007. Beierle then became a deputy director of supply and logistics for the U.S. Army, holding the position between 2008 and 2010.


    He was arrested in 2012 and 2016 after being accused of grabbing womens' buttocks, according to WCTV, which cited court records. In the first incident, a woman said Beierle groped her at a dining hall at FSU. Another woman also said that Beierle had inappropriately touched her multiple times in the prior month. In the 2016 incident, he reportedly requested to rub sunscreen on a woman's buttocks. She denied the request. Beierle then groped her and left. Charges were later dropped in both cases.


    The gunman was also arrested for trespassing at a FSU dining hall in 2014, when he had a campus-wide trespass warning against him.


    The victims of the shooting were 61-year-old Nancy Van Vessem, and 21-year-old Maura Binkley. Binkley was a FSU student. Van Vessem was a faculty member of the university's medical school. Van Vessem was an internal medicine doctor who was the chief medical director for Florida's Capital Helath Plan, according to the Tallahassee Democrat. "There are no words to express the shock and grief we feel after learning of the deaths of Maura Binkley and Dr. Nancy Van Vessem. To lose one of our students and one of our faculty members in this tragic and violent way is just devastating to ...

    Who is Scott Paul Beierle, the man accused of the Tallahassee yoga studio shooting?

    The man who shot to death two people at a yoga studio in Tallahassee on Friday night was a Deltona resident with a history of violence toward young women, police said. Scott Paul Beierle, 40, shot six people and pistol whipped another at Hot Yoga Tallahassee on Thomasville Road just after 5:30 p.m., Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said. The gunman then shot and killed himself, DeLeo said. Police have not identified a motive but are “continuing to follow up the investigative leads for [Beierle] and what made him come to our community and commit this heinous act here,” DeLeo ...


    In a series of YouTube videos from 2014, Beierle ranted against women, nonwhites, gays and police officers. YouTube took down the channel Saturday afternoon, saying it violated the company’s policy on violence. Volusia County deputies on Saturday executed a search warrant on Beierle’s Deltona home, and multiple search warrants have been obtained on Beierle’s electronic devices and social media profiles, Tallahassee police said. Police said Beierle, a Florida State University graduate, was staying at a local hotel on Friday before he drove to the yoga studio in a 2015 red Chevrolet and posed as a customer. Once inside, he started ...

    Tallahassee police said law enforcement in the past had responded to calls involving Beierle harassing women. Beierle was charged with battery in 2016 after he slapped and grabbed a woman’s buttocks at an apartment complex pool. Records show that the charges were eventually dismissed after Beierle followed the conditions of a deferred prosecution agreement.


    He was also charged with battery in 2012 for grabbing women’s buttocks in a university campus dining hall. A FSU police report shows that Beierle told police he may have accidentally bumped into someone, but denied grabbing anyone.


    In 2014, Beierle was charged with trespassing at FSU. He had been seen following an FSU volleyball coach near the campus gym and was told that he was banned from campus. A month later police found him at a campus restaurant and arrested him.


    The owner of Hot Yoga Tallahassee, Brittani Whittington, is also a Central Florida native, Heavy.com reported. Posts on the studio’s Facebook page show she is originally from Apopka, according to the news site. In Tallahassee, mourners trickled by the Hot Yoga studio on Saturday to lay flowers at the door of the shop. Olivia Obrecht, one of those who came by, said she was working at the Haute Headz Salon at the front of the shopping complex when the shooting took place. There was a whir of police sirens and then an order for management to lock down the shop. ...

    Yoga shooter posted racist, misogynistic videos

    A brooding military veteran and former teacher who railed at women and blacks in a series of poorly lit videos shot two women to death and wounded five other people at a Florida yoga studio before killing himself. The Friday evening shooting at a busy upscale shopping plaza jolted the state capital and police said they were still searching for a motive that led to the deaths of a Florida State University student and a well-known local doctor who was a member of the school faculty.


    Beierle, who had moved to the central Florida town of Deltona after getting a graduate degree from FSU, also appear to post a series of videos on YouTube in 2014 where he called women “whores” if they dated black men, said many black women were “disgusting” and described himself as a misogynist. He said promiscuous women deserved to be crucified and he suggested putting up land mines to keep people from crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. The existence of the videos was first reported by BuzzFeed.


    Tallahassee police say Beierle shot six people and pistol-whipped another after walking into the yoga studio that sits on the second floor of a shopping center located near the city’s fashionable midtown neighborhoods. Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said some in the studio showed courage by trying to stop him. This undated photo provided by Leon County Sheriff’s Office shows Scott Paul Beierle. Two people were shot to death and five others wounded at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Fla., by Beierle, who then killed himself. Witnesses at the shopping center described how people who had been in the studio ...

He said promiscuous women deserved to be crucified and he suggested putting up land mines to keep people from crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. The existence of the videos was first reported by BuzzFeed.


    In one video, he likened his adolescent self to Elliot Rodger, a 22-year-old who killed six students and wounded more than a dozen others near the University of California, Santa Barbara, before killing himself in 2014. Rodger was a self-identified “incel,” short for “involuntary celibate.”

Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said some in the studio showed courage by trying to stop him. Witnesses at the shopping center described how people who had been in the studio ran away, seeking shelter in nearby bars and restaurants as shots rang out. Police responded within a few minutes, but by then Beirele had fatally shot himself, leaving police to search for a motive and a ...


    Kristi Malone, who had a graduate class with Beierle, said in a Facebook message that she did not interact with him outside of the classroom because of “his odd leering, inappropriate comments and general demeanor.” “I know that myself and several of my female colleagues made a point to never be alone with him even at school because of his odd behavior,” Malone said.


    Mike Orgo, who was friends with Beierle on Facebook, said he met him back in 2011 at comedy night open microphone sessions held at a Tallahassee restaurant. He said that he did not know him well but said he “definitely seemed angry and on edge.”


    Witnesses told police that Beierle posed as a customer to gain entrance to the studio, then started shooting without warning. Police have not yet said what kind of gun he used. Bohnett said she did not recognize Beierle. The two slain Friday were a student and faculty member at Florida State University, according to university officials. The department identified them as Dr. Nancy Van Vessem, 61, and Maura Binkley, 21. Binkley was a student from Atlanta who was due to graduate in May. Police said two other victims were in stable condition, and three had been released from the hospital. ...

    Wichita yoga instructor talks building design, safety after Florida shooting

    It was Friday evening when Kelsea Wright got a text that a gunman had opened fire at a Florida yoga studio. "We come to yoga to leave our day behind, to de-stress, to get our workout in, stay fit, stay happy and to think that, that can be so violently disturbed is heartbreaking,” said Wright. Wright owns Limitless Yoga in Wichita and although the shooting is news she didn't expect, it's a scenario she's been prepared for. "Before all this happened, I designed this studio with a little bit of that in mind just because I taught in public schools ...

    Florida yoga studio shooter gave off 'psychopath vibe' as substitute teacher

    Aloof and blank, “Mr. B.” wasn’t like other substitute teachers at Deltona Middle School. He was quiet and disengaged. He wouldn’t help students even when they asked for it. He dozed off at his desk in the back of the classroom. Students who derided him behind his back recorded him sleeping at his desk and posted it on Snapchat for all to see. A year before Scott Beierle opened fire inside a Tallahassee yoga studio, killing two people and wounding five others before killing himself, he worked as a substitute teacher for Volusia County Schools. At Deltona Middle, he earned ...


    'Really weird aura': Beierle always had the same empty expression on his face all the time, Samantha said. If he wasn’t asleep in the back of the classroom, he was fiddling with his cell phone. The students seemed an afterthought. “He would never really smile, never gave off much except a really weird aura, I guess," she said. "He would put you on edge if he was talking with you or you were alone with him. A lot of the students in my class used to make fun of him."


    Kelly Schulz, a spokeswoman for the Volusia County Schools, confirmed Sunday that Beierle worked as a substitute teacher for the district last year. She acknowledged the district will conduct a review of Beierle’s employment. But she said she couldn’t comment further until the district office opens on Monday.


    Student encounters with Beierle: One day last year, Samantha found herself alone with Beierle after class. She said she wanted to ask him why he gave her an F on an assignment and why he was putting grades in the grade book, something she said substitute teachers weren’t supposed to do. He ended up changing her grade to a C. But she still found the encounter with Beierle off-putting. “I can’t really describe it,” she said. “He just intimidated me, made me feel uncomfortable. It wasn’t really anything he said. It was just his energy and the way he spoke.” ...


    Mason Roberts, a 13-year-old eighth grader at Deltona and a friend of Samantha, said Beierle showed up as a substitute teacher in her language arts class once last year. “He was very quiet,” she said. “He seemed just out of it, I guess. He seemed very lazy. And even when we asked him a question, he seemed not to care. He was really creepy. He didn’t do things like a substitute would normally do.”


    Parents question his hiring as teacher: Even though her class was well-behaved that day, Beierle gave them extra work to do outside the regular teacher’s lesson plans. “He seemed like he had more authority than a substitute teacher should have,” she said. “And it was just strange because we’d never had a substitute that gave us extra work. We never had a substitute who put grades in the grade book.”



    Mason’s mom, Allison Roberts, said she was shocked Beierle was ever allowed to teach. Beierle had a history of arrests, but not convictions, for grabbing young women around the campus of Florida State University, where he earned master’s degrees. She found out about Beierle on Saturday night, after her daughter mentioned it at dinner.

    “I was very shocked,” she said. “I was very upset. Someone with charges like that? How in the (expletive deleted) did he get in the classroom with my daughter? Anyone that’s got a history of being arrested for things such as that should absolutely not be around teenage girls or children period.”


    Beierle also taught high school English and social studies in Anne Arundel County in Maryland from 2005 to 2007, according to WTOP of Washington, D.C. He resigned at the end of the 2006-2007 school year, district officials told the news station.


    'A loner' banned from FSU: Beierle was arrested on two counts of simple battery in 2012 after two young women complained he grabbed their buttocks at the Suwannee Room dining hall at FSU. He was arrested again on battery in 2016 after grabbing a young woman’s behind at the swimming pool at his apartment complex on West Tennessee Street. But prosecutors dropped charges in both cases. In the 2012 case, at least one of the victims decided not to pursue charges.


    Court records indicate he got into trouble on campus after his first arrest, prompting the FSU Police Department to ban him from campus. On June 17, 2014, the FSU Police Department gave Beierle a trespass warning, though the reason why wasn’t clear from records. A couple of weeks later, he was arrested for trespassing after campus officers spotted him inside Fresh Food on West Call Street, a campus eatery he was known to frequent. Dennis Schnittker, a spokesman for FSU, confirmed Sunday that Beierle was admitted to the university in 2011 and was awarded master’s degrees in public administration and ...


    ‘American Massacre’: Beierle was also apparently an amateur musician. He posted songs on SoundCloud through an alias and placed lyrics and videos on a companion website, which includes his photo in front of the U.S. Capitol. The music contains violent lyrics and song titles, including “Homicidal Impulse” and “American Whore.” Some of the music was available for purchase through at least one online retailer. One music video may have been inspired by his battery arrest and includes visuals of Taylor Swift, who was groped in a 2013 incident that became the subject of lawsuits.


    In “American Massacre,” he sang, “If I cannot find a decent female to live with, I will find many indecent females to die with. Finally, I find that if I cannot make a living, then I will turn, to be successful, I will make a killing.”

    Man fought back during yoga studio shooting with a broom


    A yoga student is being lauded as a hero for wrestling with a gunman who entered a yoga studio in Florida and began firing.
    Joshua Quick spoke to ABC's Good Morning America on Sunday and said he grabbed Scott Paul Beierle's gun after it jammed, and hit him. Tallahassee Police have identified Beierle as the man who posed as a customer to get into the studio Hot Yoga Tallahassee during a Friday night class and started shooting, killing two and wounding six. Police say Beierle, 40, then turned the gun on himself but authorities have offered no motive in the attack.

    Quick said Beierle was able to grab the gun back and then pistol-whip him.

    "I jumped up as quickly as I could," said Quick, who had visible facial injuries. "I ran back over and the next thing I know I'm grabbing a broom, the only thing I can, and I hit him again."

    It gave some in the studio time to flee.


    "Thanks to him I was able to rush out the door," Daniela Garcia Albalat told Good Morning America. She was in the class and thought she was going to die. "He saved my life." Two women — a 61-year-old faculty member at Florida State University, and a 21-year-old FSU student — were fatally shot. Dr. Nancy Van Vessem was an internist who also served as chief medical director for Capital Health Plan, the area's leading health maintenance organization. She was also a faculty member at Florida State and a mother. Maura Binkley, who grew up in Atlanta and was a ...

    A man trying to stop a shooting attack on a Florida yoga studio said Sunday that he wrestled with the attacker after his gun jammed, a move credited with giving others time to flee the rampage that killed two people and wounded six others. Yoga student Joshua Quick spoke to ABC's Good Morning America on Sunday and said he grabbed Scott Paul Beierle's gun after it jammed, and hit him. Tallahassee Police have identified Beierle as the man who posed as a customer to get into the studio Hot Yoga Tallahassee during a Friday night class and started shooting. Police ...


    A woman who filed a police report against Beierle told The AP she's never forgotten how "creepy" he was. Courtnee Connon was 18 in 2012 when, she said, Scott Paul Beierle grabbed her buttocks at a Florida State dining hall. She declined to press charges, however. She learned of Beierle's involvement Friday when a local reporter found her name in a police report and called her. "I was totally just shocked," she said. "Since then, I've been feeling a little guilt. If I'd pressed charges, would that have stopped him from doing this? How was he not monitored somehow?"


    Four years after that, Beierle was arrested for misdemeanor battery after a young woman said he approached her at the swimming pool of a Tallahassee apartment complex, complemented her rear end and offered to rub sunscreen on it, records show. The woman said she declined the offer and, according to an affidavit, Beierle then slapped her on the buttocks and grabbed her. The top prosecutor for the office that handled Beierle's 2016 charge, William N. "Willie" Meggs, has no personal recollection of that case. However, since the 2012 battery charges were dropped, Meggs said, it would have been routine for ...

    Florida yoga studio suspected gunman was former Maryland school teacher, officials say

    The man suspected of shooting two women to death and wounding five others at a Florida yoga studio before taking his own life was a former Maryland teacher, officials say. Bob Mosier with Anne Arundel County schools confirms Scott Paul Beierle taught English and Social Studies at Meade High School in Fort Meade during 2005-06 and 2006-07 school years. Beierle resigned after the 2006-07 school year, officials say. The Friday evening shooting at a busy upscale shopping plaza jolted the state capital and police said they were still searching for a motive that led to the deaths of a Florida ...

    Another ‘Incel’ Weirdo: Tallahassee Shooter Was Public School Teacher

    Scott Beierle was weird. He was from upstate New York, graduated from SUNY-Binghamton in 2002 and later got a graduate degree at FSU: Kristi Malone, who had a graduate class with Beierle, said in a Facebook message that she did not interact with him outside of the classroom because of “his odd leering, inappropriate comments and general demeanor.” “I know that myself and several of my female colleagues made a point to never be alone with him even at school because of his odd behavior,” Malone said. . . . Court records show that Beierle was charged by police with ...


    It turns out Beierle had been posting stuff online identifying as an “incel” (involuntary celibate), praising Santa Barbara killer Elliott Rodger, and recording punk rock songs with titles like “Homicidal Impulse” and “American Massacre.” He wrote lyrics like this:


    If I cannot find a decent female to live with,
    I will find many indecent females to die with.
    Finally, I find that if I cannot make a living,
    Then I will turn, to be successful, I will make a killing.

    Did I mention he had been working as a substitute teacher?

    At Deltona Middle, he earned a reputation among students for being lazy, detached and downright strange. “He just gave off a psychopath vibe, like someone crazy,” said Samantha Mikolajczyk, 14, who had Beierle as a sub in her history class about a dozen times last year when she was in eighth grade. . . . “He would never really smile, never gave off much except a really weird aura, I guess,” she said. “He would put you on edge if he was talking with you or you were alone with him. A lot of the students in my class used ...


    Left-wing sites describe Beierle as a “far-right misogynist”:

    In one video called “Plight of the Adolescent Male,” Beierle named Elliot Rodger, who killed six people and injured 14 in a shooting in Isla Vista, California. Rodger is often seen as a hero for so-called incels, or those who consider themselves “involuntarily celibate.” “I’d like to send a message now to the adolescent males … that are in the position, the situation, the disposition of Elliot Rodger, of not getting any, no love, no nothing. This endless wasteland that breeds this longing and this frustration. That was me, certainly, as an adolescent,” Beierle said. . . . Unlike the ...



    So, you’re a 40-year-old loser can’t get laid, who has been twice arrested for sexual battery against women and, in your twisted mind, this justifies shooting random strangers? Identifying this loser as “far right” might serve some political purpose for the Left, as a guilt-by-association smear, but it does nothing to help us understand the psychology of weirdos like Scott Beirle. “He was very quiet. . . . He seemed just out of it,” as one of his former students described him. His “demeanor” was unsettling, as a former FSU classmate said. He recalled his adolescence as an experience of “not getting any, no love, no nothing.” He complained he could not “find a decent female to live with.” Shouldn’t reporters ask why?


    When I was in school, our teachers taught us that a journalist should seek answers to six questions: Who, what, when, where, why and how? Not everything can be explained in terms of partisan politics or ideology. The fact that Beierle expressed some “far right” opinions is enough to cancel any journalistic curiosity on the part of liberal writers who only care about constructing a political narrative, but it doesn’t explain how someone like Beierle — a once promising young man who was an Eagle Scout and football player in high school — ended up as a sexual pervert full ...

    What We Know About the Yoga Studio Shooter

    Aloof and blank, "Mr. B." wasn't like other substitute teachers at Deltona Middle School. He was quiet and disengaged. He wouldn't help students even when they asked for it. He dozed off at his desk in the back of the classroom. Students who derided him behind his back recorded him sleeping at his desk and posted it on Snapchat for all to see. A year before Scott Beierle opened fire inside a Tallahassee yoga studio, killing two people and wounding five others before killing himself, he worked as a substitute teacher for Volusia County Schools. At Deltona Middle, he earned ...

    Who Is Scott Paul Beierle? New Details About The Tallahassee Yoga Shooter Who Shot Six Women, Killing Two

    He has a history of hatred toward women: A gunman shot six women, killing two, before fatally shooting himself at a Tallahassee yoga studio early Friday evening. The shooter was identified as 40-year-old Scott Beierle. Beierle entered Hot Yoga Tallahassee just after 5:30 p.m., posing as a customer for the studio's evening class. Without any warning, he pulled a handgun from a black bag he brought to the building and began firing on the others in the room. Beierle shot six women and pistol-whipped a man before turning the gun on himself. Maura Binkley, a 21-year-old student at Florida State ...
