FSU president John Thrasher said: "To lose one of our students and one of our faculty members in this tragic and violent way is just devastating to the Florida State University family". Four others were shot, including one victim who was hit nine times, but survived, officials said.

BuzzFeed News first reported on the videos.

In one video, the man said promiscuous women deserved to be crucified and he suggested putting up land mines to keep people from crossing into the US from Mexico.

A witness at a nearby bar said people came inside seeking assistance, saying a man was acting strangely inside the Hot Yoga Studio then began shooting during a class, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

The shooting occurred Friday evening in an upscale shopping center.

Police responded within a few minutes, but by then Beirele had fatally shot himself, leaving police to search for a motive and a community to wonder what prompted the violence.

"It's a place that brings my joy and peace, and I think it's ruined", said Katie Bohnett, an instructor at the yoga studio who skipped her normal Friday practice to meet a friend for dinner. "This monster ruined it". City spokesman Jamie Van Pelt said the shooting appeared to be a part of a domestic dispute.

Two of the wounded were in stable condition and three were released from a local hospital, while Beierle died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

"All evidence points to a single actor who has stayed on scene and is deceased at this time so there is no additional threat to the public", DeLeo said. When she said no, court documents say he grabbed her buttocks and left.

"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. He lamented his inability to connect with other people - from Army comrades who he said would not travel with him while stationed in Europe to women who refused to go out with him.

During a late night press briefing, Mr DeLeo declined to say what kind of gun he had. Bohnett said she did not recognize Beierle.

Beierle was also charged with battery in 2012 for grabbing women's buttocks in a Florida State University (FSU) campus dining hall.

Officials say 61-year-old Nancy Van Vessem and 21-year-old Maura Binkley have died due to their injuries.

Van Vessem was a doctor specializing in internal medicine who worked as chief medical director for Florida's Capital Health Plan, the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper reported.

In that case, Tallahassee police records show, Beierle was arrested after he approached a woman sunbathing at a pool and complimented her on her figure. The 2016 charges were dismissed after Beierle followed a deferred prosecution agreement, which grants a defendant amnesty in exchange for obeying certain requirements. A university police report shows that Beierle told police he may have accidentally bumped into someone, but denied grabbing anyone.

Beierle was connected to FSU, too, police said.
