FSU shooter: Jameis Winston is either ‘depraved’ or someone is out to get him

Myron May, the man identified as the gunman who shot three people at Florida State University’s library early Thursday before being killed by police, was highly critical of the controversies surrounding FSU football player Jameis Winston.

Although there appears to be no connection between May’s actions and Winston, May’s status update about Winston is one of the few times he mentions Florida State University on his Facebook page.

“Now, either Jameis is one of the most depraved people to ever play college football or somebody is really out to get this fellow,” May wrote earlier this month. “I mean, I find it hard to believe that a student-athlete has time to do all of this. These pills just seem really hard to swallow, and this bottle of pills clearly came in bulk from Sam’s or Costco.”

Almost all of the rest of May’s posts are either quotes from the Bible or updates about his family.

Abigail Taunton, who runs a foster home in the Florida Panhandle, told The Associated Press that May had recently been staying at a guest house she owns. She said police interviewed her husband, David, after the shooting.

“He’s just a boy our kids grew up with that we let stay in one of our guest houses for a while,” she said. “He’s moving back home from Texas and we were trying to help him get on his feet.

“It’s horrifying.”
