“We are shocked and saddened by the news last night of the horrific shooting at the Hot Yoga studio last night that claimed the lives of two Florida State University members: Dr. Nancy Van Vessem and a student, Maura Binkley, as well as injuring several others. According to news reports, several people in the studio courageously fought back against the shooter, which may have saved additional lives.
