According to CBS, the gunman walked in, opened fire, and killed himself once he had completed his intended goal:
“Elle Welling, a resident who lives nearby, said she watched several people being loaded into an ambulance. ‘You don’t think about this in Tallahassee and now you have to,’ Welling told The Associated Press.”
