The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

A man fired from a pri­vate school Tues­day re­turned to cam­pus with a gun hid­den in a gui­tar case and fa­tally shot the head­mistress be­fore com­mit­ting sui­cide, au­thor­i­ties said. No stu­dents were in­jured. Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the Epis­co­pal School of Jack­sonville at 1:23 p.m. Tues­day af­ter re­ceiv­ing re­ports of a per­son with a gun, and the school was placed on lock­down. When of­fi­cers ar­rived, Dale Re­gan, head of the school, and the gun­man were found dead, Un­der­sh­er­iff Dwain Sen­ter­fitt said. The gun­man has not been iden­ti­fied. Epis­co­pal has about 900 stu­dents in grades six to 12. Its cam­pus sits along the south bank of the St. Johns River in cen­tral Jack­sonville. he was the sole win­ner of a $38.5 mil­lion Mega Mil­lions lot­tery jack­pot.

The work­ers say they and Americo Lopes were mem­bers of a weekly lot­tery pool. They say each per­son would con­trib­ute $2 and Lopes would buy the tick­ets.

Mr. Lopes says he played the lot­tery by him­self and as a mem­ber of the pool. He claims the win­ning ticket in the Novem­ber 2009 draw­ing was one he bought for him­self.

Mr. Lopes chose the lump-sum pay­ment op­tion and re­ceived $24 mil­lion. The five plain­tiffs are seek­ing an even split of that money, mean­ing they and Lopes would get $4 mil­lion each.
