Two men wounded in a north Florida shooting spree have been released from a hospital.

Two other men shot by Clifford Miller Jr. remained hospitalized
Wednesday, Oct. 6 in fair condition, and a fifth was in serious condition.

Police say 24-year-old Miller killed his father before going on
a rampage Monday in Gainesville. It wasn't clear what triggered the
shootings, but police say Miller targeted his victims before
killing himself.

Miller had a lengthy criminal history.

According to documents filed Thursday in Alachua County court,
Miller had not been complying with the terms of his release after
an April traffic violation. A court officer reported that Miller
had not stayed in contact with his father, a pretrial release
officer or a therapist.

others are in fair condition.

had a relationship with the victims, but the motive remains unclear.

    You can bet if this had been a "disgruntled white male" the main stream media would be quick to run stories on how he was a republican and voted against healthcare and this story would be blasted on every station for weeks. Instead he was an Obammy voter and this story will be gone in a hot second like the attack on the white elderly man by several non whites that should have been labeled a hate crime. Say goodbye to this story , it will be off the main page before the 6 oclock news tonight, pushed to page two by a spotlight on the Oxygen Ball, or how a puppy was lost on the parkway. Ohhh the burden of the white male.
