PANAMA CITY, Florida — A gunman opened fire during a Florida school board meeting Tuesday, police said.

Panama City police Sgt. Jeff Becker said one person was shot, but he would not say if it was the gunman or someone else.

WMBB television reporter Nadeen Yanes told her station that the man came up to the podium at the Bay District School Board meeting and said he had a motion. He then pulled out a can of red spray paint and painted a V with a circle around it.

Yanes told the station he pulled out a handgun and started talking. She said school board member Ginger Littleton hit the gunman with her purse and he pushed her to the ground and started firing randomly.

Yanes and others ran outside. Police had no additional information about the condition of the person who was shot.
