Myron May -- FSU Shooter with paranoid schizophrenia?

Yup, that's a Facebook post by someone with paranoid schizophrenia all right...
No, it's paranoid schizophrenia.

"Brandishing a semi-automatic handgun and carrying extra ammunition in his pockets, a Florida State University graduate opened fire early on Thursday at the school's main library, wounding two students and an employee as hundreds were studying for exams.
The shooter, identified by authorities as Myron May, 31, was fatally shot by police near the entrance to Florida State's Strozier Library, the latest in a string of shootings on U.S. campuses. One victim was critically wounded.
Authorities said they found journals and videos produced by May in which he expressed fears that government agencies were targeting him.
"Mr. May was in a state of crisis," Michael DeLeo, the police chief in Tallahassee, told a news conference.
A 2005 Florida State graduate, May received his law degree from Texas Tech University in 2009 and had moved back to Florida about three weeks ago, DeLeo said.
He recently quit his job and broke up with his girlfriend, according to police reports in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he was living. He told authorities he was hearing voices and thought he was being watched."

Died of untreated schizophrenia.
Here's another opportunity for people to blow smoke about improving access to mental health care in the United States. After they get done blowing smoke about school safety and gun control, of course. My bold prediction is...nothing will change.
