TALLAHASSEE, FL - Police say they have a journal and videos that indicate a gunman who shot three students at Florida State University's library believed the government had targeted him.

Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said Thursday that Myron May was armed with a .380 semi-automatic handgun and reloaded at least once. DeLeo said May tried to get past security barriers before he was fatally shot by officers.

DeLeo said May and officers exchanged more than 30 shots.

May graduated from Florida State and then the law school at Texas Tech. He had been working as a lawyer in Texas and New Mexico before recently returning to Florida.
