3 dead, multiple wounded in US yoga studio shooting: police

Miami, Nov 3 (AFP) A gunman killed two people and injured several others at a yoga studio in Florida's state capital Tallahassee Friday before apparently taking his own life, the local police chief said.<br>  "About 5:47 pm the Tallahassee Police Department responded...in reference to a shooting," police chief Michael DeLeo said at a press conference.<br> "Upon arriving on scene, the officers found multiple victims suffering from gunshot wounds." First responders transported five people to a nearby hospital, with two later succumbing to their wounds, DeLeo said.<br> One of the victims was pistol-whipped, police said.<br> "There are indications that several people inside fought back and tried to not only save themselves but other people, which is a testament to their courage," DeLeo said.<br> The shooting appeared to be the act of a single person, with no further threat to the community perceived at this time, according to the police chief.<br> Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is currently running for governor of Florida and cut short a campaign event to return to the city, tweeted: "I'm deeply appreciative of law enforcement's quick response to the shooting at the yoga facility in Tallahassee today."<br> "No act of gun violence is acceptable. I'm in close communication with law enforcement officials and will be returning to Tallahassee tonight."
