Florida school closed for now after shooting
Jacksonville, Fla., school closed through spring break after fatal shooting of headmistress
By The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) ' A northeast Florida school will remain closed through next week's spring break after its headmistress was gunned down in her office by a former teacher.

Authorities say 28-year-old Spanish teacher Shane Schumerth was fired Tuesday before returning to the Episcopal School of Jacksonville in the afternoon and killing 63-year-old Dale Regan. He then committed suicide.

Details about Schumerth's firing were not immediately available.



The gunman's father, Steve Schumerth of Culver, Ind., told the Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/wPeYMe ) his family is in shock. He says the family sends prayers to the Episcopal School family.

Regan had worked at the school for more than 30 years. Schumerth was a 2007 graduate of Purdue University.

School officials say counseling and pastoral care will be provided to students, staff and others.
