Florida gunman kills self, 1 other and wounds 5

UPDATE: The man killed was Miller’s 52-year old father and wounded others with a .38 caliber revolver.  After the shooting spree Miller drove to his friend’s house, parked in the driveway and shot himself.  The friend was once married to Miller’s aunt.  He heard a gunshot ran outside and found Miller dead in his truck.

Clifford Miller Jr., 24 fatally shot one man and then went on a 13-minute shooting spree in a 3-mile area of Gainsville, Florida neighborhood on Monday. After the shooting spree, five men were wounded and Miller turned his gun on himself.  The 24-year old gunman had a history of mental illness as well as a lengthy criminal history.

Authorities say Miller was targeting certain types of people, however they are not elaborating on the motive at this time.  Currently, we only know that all the victims were men.

“We don’t know the reasons he went to the houses, but we know he went to specific locations,” Alachua County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Steve Maynard said. “He had opportunities to go someplace to be a random shooter. He could have gone to the mall, or a number of different locations. He did not do that.”

Victims were treated a local hospitals.  Names of the victims have not been released at this time.
