TEMPE, Ariz. – Clay Duke, the gunman who opened fire at a Florida school board meeting, was a graduate of of Arizona State University.

According to the university’s registrar, Duke, who is now 56 years-old, graduated from ASU in 1988 with a degree in recreation and tourism management.

Duke held members of the school board at gunpoint Tuesday before randomly firing the gun. He reportedly exchanged gunfire with a security guard before shooting and killing himself.

Panama City Police Chief John Van Etten says the shooting at the Bay District board meeting was not a “spur of the moment thing.”

Police found a calendar in a mobile home Duke kept in the woods with the date Dec. 14 circled.

Video has been released of Duke complaining about taxes and his wife being fired by the district before he took his own life.
