BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Saturday marks nine years since a gunman opened fire at a Bay District school board meeting.
On December 14, 2010, Clay Duke walked into the school board meeting and pointed a gun at board members because his wife was laid off from the district.
Duke can be seen in the video pointing and shooting a gun at board members and spray-painting a "V" on one of the walls.
District Security Chief Mike Jones shot at Duke, injuring him, but the shootout ultimately ended when Duke killed himself.
No one else was injured in the incident thanks to Jones' quick response time.
"We are all so blessed to be here, and I was blessed that God led me to do what I had to do that day and protected me as he protected the others in that room and we survived and it made us stronger," Jones said.
Since the shooting, the District has increased security at all schools and a Sheriff's Deputy is at every school board meeting.
