Shane Schumerth

The Culver community is still in shock over the horrific news from Jacksonville, Florida this week. Shane Schumerth, a recently fired teacher from an Episcopal school there, fatally shot the head of the school Tuesday.

Schumerth, a Culver Academy graduate, had been terminated by the school, and after being escorted from the campus returned with an AK-47 weapon and shot Dale Regan before turning the gun on himself.

His father, Steve Schumerth of Culver, expressed in an e-mail to the Jacksonville Times-Union shock and sadness over the shootings and said the family was very sorry this happened.

Schumerth was described by those who knew him as being shy, but non threatening.
