The Latest: Father said bank gunman has ‘been a good kid’

SEBRING, Fla. (AP) — The superintendent of a northern Indiana school district says a man accused of fatally shooting five people inside a Florida bank branch attended classes there for portions of two school years several years ago.

But Superintendent Jim White of Bremen Public Schools says federal law prevents him from disclosing any details about any former student’s school record.

White’s statement Thursday said the district offers its “deepest condolences” to “friends, family members, and others impacted” by Wednesday’s shooting in Sebring, Florida. He called it “a sobering reminder of how quickly a tragedy can befall upon any community.”

White said suspected 21-year-old gunman Zephen Xaver attended Bremen High School for a portion of the 2012-13 school year and returned for a “brief period” the next year.

White told The Associated Press that Xaver did not graduate from the school after attending classes there during what would have been his senior year.
