A 56-year old man, apparently angry that his wife had been fired from a school in Florida, has opened fire at a school board meeting.

Footage shows the man, an ex-convict who has been named as Clay Duke, raising his gun at board members and firing several shots.

The bullets missed and he was eventually injured by a security guard and later took his own life.

Adam Brookes reports.
