They were identified as Dr. Nancy Van Vessem, 61, and Maura Binkley, 21.

Van Vessem was also an internist and worked for Tallahassee's Capital Health Plan as the chief medical director, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Van Vessem was a faculty member of FSU's medical school and Binkley was a student at the university, Tallahassee station WCTV reported. "Our hearts are with her family, our sisters and the FSU community during this hard time". We all have been so blessed to have Nancy in our lives'.

Binkley was a student at Florida State University, while Van Vessem was a faculty member at the institution.

"We've lost one of the greatest souls and greatest minds that I feel like Dunwoody has produced and I think that is the saddest part of it all", Osby said.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam campaigned for Gillum at an 8:30 a.m. event in Lake Worth, where Gillum was initially scheduled to appear prior to the Orlando stop.

He killed himself at the scene on Friday.

"As a leader in the (Alpha Eta) chapter, Maura embodied the Tri Delta woman - brave, bold and kind", the statement from President Kimberlee Sullivan said.

Gillum asked residents to pray for those who survived and those who were killed in the shooting.

"We all feel a sense of added vulnerability", he said.

Two of the wounded were in stable condition and three were released from a local hospital, while Beierle died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

Tallahassee City Commissioner Scott Maddox called the shooting a "senseless act of evil" and the "worst" scene he had been on in his public service career.

"The gun shot six or seven times".

Two people were killed and at least five others wounded in a shooting at a Florida hot yoga studio.

The police statement says, "Patrons fought the assailant to prevent him from harming themselves and others".

Police responded within a few minutes, but by then Beirele had fatally shot himself, leaving police to search for a motive and a community to wonder what prompted the violence near the city's fashionable midtown neighborhoods.

Police haven't identified the shooter and are asking for anyone who saw something unusual around the time of the shooting to contact police.

On Friday evening, survivors said Beierle kept walking in and out of the yoga studio as class began, according to Melissa Hutchinson, who works at a restaurant below Hot Yoga and later cleaned a survivor's blood off the kitchen floor.

The incident, which took place at Thomasville Road and Bradford Road, caused traffic to be stopped temporarily, but resumed soon after.
