Witness, Alex Redding told the Tallahassee Democrat a woman ran into the bar downstairs, followed by a man with blood on his head.
He said two to three other people sought help in Bar at Betton, who told him a tall man with a beard was acting strangely in the studio and before shooting.
The individual who had blood on his head had attempted to stop the shooter only to be pistol-whipped.
Witness, Elle Welling said she was leaving a liquor store across the street from the shopping center and saw at least three people loaded into ambulances.
‘You don’t think about this in Tallahassee and now you have to,’ said Welling, 26, who lives in the neighborhood.
Tallahassee Police tweeted: ‘TPD is working an incident at Thomasville Road and Bradford. Please avoid the area.’
Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare spokeswoman Danielle Buchanan in earlier reports told of six patients being taken to the hospital.
Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is the Democratic nominee for governor, tweeted that he’s breaking off the campaign trail to return to Tallahassee.
‘I’m deeply appreciative of law enforcement’s quick response to the shooting at the yoga facility in Tallahassee today. No act of gun violence is acceptable. I’m in close communication with law enforcement officials and will be returning to Tallahassee tonight,’ Gillum tweeted.
