The assailant has been identified, and details are emerging about his criminal and online history.

Nancy Van Vessem, 61, and Maura Binkley, 21, were killed, DeLeo said. Both were connected to Florida State University, which is based in the city. One woman said in a police report that Beierle grabbed her while she was at a soda fountain and she "thought it may have been her boyfriend at first". Police have also obtained multiple search warrants on his electronic devices and social media profiles.

Police identified the shooter early Saturday morning as 40-year-old Scott Paul Beierle.

City spokesman Jamie Van Pelt said the shooting appeared to be a part of a domestic dispute, the Associated Press reported.

In 2014, Beierle was charged with trespassing at FSU. However, since the 2012 battery charges were dropped, Meggs said, it would have been routine for Beierle to receive a deferred prosecution deal. In the video, Beierle also ranted against interracial relationships, saying women who participate in them have betrayed "their blood". Court records show he asked a woman sunbathing by the pool if he could rub sunscreen on her buttocks. On it, he posted songs with lyrics describing violence against women, with one song, complaining about "the girl I can't get in the sack", posted just hours before the shooting. It includes a section in which he called black women "ugly and disgusting".

With a heart full of hate and gun packed with bullets Scott Paul Beierle would have his vengeance.

Beierle's LinkedIn page says he attended FSU for a masters degree in public administration and urban planning, and graduated from Binghamton University in NY in 2002. "Kept making excuses. Ah, I could've ripped her head off". Police said "he has been the subject of prior calls for service in the Tallahassee area related to harassment of young women" but did not elaborate. Beierle also had a SoundCloud account that is still active.

Miller could not confirm misogyny as a motive in this attack. Others eventually co-opted the term, and it took on an entirely different meaning than its original creator intended.
