More than half a million older Californians — 12.6 percent of the state’s senior population — fall more than once a year, but nearly 60 percent of them fail to seek medical attention afterward, according to a study by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research issued today.
The Tallahassee Police Department has confirmed that the three people wounded in Thursday’s shooting are students. Their identities have not yet been released, but their families have been notified. Police are not releasing the identity of the shooter at this time.
A total of five officers from the Florida State University and Tallahassee Police Departments have been placed on administrative leave following the shooting.
Anyone with information about the shooting at the Strozier Library is asked to call 850-891-4200 or Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS.
A man is dead and three people are reportedly wounded following an early Thursday morning shooting on the Florida State University campus.
Details in the incident remain murky, but it is being reported that the gunman was shot by police after he was ordered to drop his weapon. The man, however, fire a single shot and police returned fire, The Tampa Tribune reported.
The shooting took place in the Strozier Library around 12:30 a.m. About 300 to 400 students were in the library at the time, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.
The Tallahassee Police Department said three people were treated at the scene for gunshot wounds. Two had to be taken to local hospitals. The condition of the victims remains unclear.
Students reported chaos as the incident unfolded.
Student John Ehab of Tampa was on the library’s third floor when he heard the shots.
“Everyone heard them,” he was quoted by the Tampa Bay Times as saying. Ehab said people took cover in the aisles in case the gunman came to that floor.
While further details about the shooting, including the identities of those involved, are not yet available, the school has canceled classes today.

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as Armistice Day with the following:
“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
Hoping to generate leads in their investigation, Newport Beach police today released surveillance video images of a robber who held up a Union Bank branch last week.
The robbery occurred about 2 p.m. Friday at 2865 East Coast Highway, according to Jennifer Manzella of the Newport Beach Police Department.
The armed suspect flashed his weapon at a teller as he demanded cash, Manzella said.
The robber ditched a bag he stuffed the loot in, along with clothes and the gun, Manzella said.
The suspect is a white man in his 30s or 40s who is 6 feet tall and weighs about 180 pounds with a medium build, Manzella said.
Anyone with information helpful to the investigation was asked to call Detective Garrett Fitzgerald at (949) 644-3797 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anonymous tips may be made by calling (800) 550-NBPD.
