A 16-year-old girl was killed and four people were wounded by gunfire Thursday after two groups clashed on a crowded Brooklyn boardwalk, cops and witnesses said.

Two of the victims were bystanders, sources said.

One man used an umbrella to crack another man in the head as the fight erupted on the Brighton Beach Boardwalk near Brighton Sixth St. about 5:20 p.m. Suddenly, a gunman squeezed off about eight rounds, first shooting in the air before aiming at the brawling crowd, cops and witnesses said.

Onlookers scurried into nearby stores and restaurants, huddling in fear as the bullets flew near the oceanfront, witnesses said.

“It was chaotic,” said a 48-year-old Queens woman who was visiting Brighton Beach. “We looked at the boardwalk and everyone was running north. It was hectic. It was panic.”

The teen – identified by friends as Tysha Jones, a Landmark High School student – was shot under the left armpit, cops said.

She later died at Coney Island Hospital, where a 23-year-old man was clinging to life with a gunshot wound to his stomach.

A gunman walked up to a podium, spray painted a red “V” with a circle around it then opened fire at a school board meeting Tuesday, sending audience members scrambling, then exchanged shots with a security guard before killing himself, police said. No one else was injured.

In video of portions of the clash, the gunman, Clay A. Duke, is shown calmly confronting the Bay District school board. Duke, who was wearing a dark pullover coat, stands about 10 feet directly in front of the board with the gun at his side. Superintendent Bill Husfelt tries to persuade him to drop the gun and let board members go.

“I’ve got a feeling you want the cops to come in and kill you because you said you are going to die today,” Husfelt tells Duke. He then tells Duke that this isn’t worth it. Duke slowly raises the gun and levels it Husfelt, who pleads “Please don’t, please don’t.” Duke then fires a shot that misses.

Video: Pro-Life Group Recalls Eerie Run-In with Discovery Channel Gunman

By Kathleen Gilbert

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 2, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The crazed eco-extremist who flung himself into the national spotlight yesterday after taking three hostages at the Discovery Channel headquarters is no stranger to the pro-life community in the nation’s capital.

Newly unearthed footage shows an unsettling 2009 confrontation between pro-lifers and a man who they say they have identified as James J. Lee, 43, who was destined to be gunned down by police a year later, after acting on his extreme dedication to “stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies.”
The drama began to unfold about around 1 pm. yesterday, when Lee entered the Silver Springs building with a gun and what appeared to be pipe bombs strapped to himself; he confirmed to a CNN producer who called the office building that he was in possession of at least one explosive.

After approximately four hours of negotiations, Lee pointed a handgun at one of his hostages, at which point he was shot and killed by police snipers. The hostages and others in the building were not harmed during the hours-long showdown with police. As stated in a manifesto published online, Lee hoped to force the Discovery Channel and The Learning Channel (TLC) to “stop all shows glorifying human birthing.” Instead the stations should air shows geared toward halting the overpopulation of “parasitic human infants” in order to save the planet from global warming and pollution. Lee was likely targeting TLC programming such as “19 and Counting” and “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” both of which follow the daily lives of large families.

TLC is owned by Discovery Communications, which also operates the Discovery Channel.

According to MSNBC, Lee credited his “awakening” to former Vice President Al Gore’s 2006 movie “An Inconvenient Truth,” which blamed man-made pollution for global warming.

Last year, Lee’s passion for suppressing the human race brought him to the steps of the Planned Parenthood building in Washington, D.C., where members of the American Life League were holding a protest against the dangers of the birth control pill.

In a video of the encounter, filmed by Lee himself, and uploaded to his Youtube account, Lee takes issue with the group’s “religious” aspect, and criticized Biblical faith as “unsustainable.” “You can’t say that we can breed as many children as I want, and that the earth is unlimited – the earth is limited. You can’t just say we got to fill the earth, have all these children, and nevermind all the other creatures. That’s what the Bible says,” the man told the group.

“See, personally I don’t care if you humans destroy yourselves with your stupid wars. But, you can’t destroy the natural world. The atomic bomb hurts other creatures … Why don’t you guys just slice yourselves with knives instead of something, but please don’t hurt the wildlife like that, there’s only so many of them,” he continued.
“Animals are wonderful creatures … they live sustainable lives. They mean no harm …. But humans are really environmentally destructive and we gotta stop breeding or something.”

Katie Walker, communications director with the American Life League, told LifeSiteNews.com that, during the confrontation, she noticed the man’s strange sense of disconnection from the human race.

“I was very struck by his disconnection with rational thought and his absolute disdain for human beings’ lives,” said Walker.

Walker said that “one of the main things that freaked us out at the time” was Lee’s referral to the pro-life witnesses as “you human beings.”
“He did not count himself one of the human race,” she said.

The young pro-life leader said she felt “shock” when she identified the Discovery Channel gunman as the same man she met outside Planned Parenthood – yet, she says, at the time of their encounter, she was “not too terribly surprised” at his disturbing philosophy.

“After all, when you stand in front of Planned Parenthood, you become very used to talking to people who don’t believe in the sanctity of human beings’ lives,” said Walker. “His views on human beings’ lives are simply the logical end of the views espoused by many in the pro-abortion movement.”

Stickup Foiled When Victim Invokes Jesus
Clerk To Gunman: ‘Jesus Has Something Way Better For You’

POSTED: Friday, July 30, 2010
UPDATED: 8:09 am EDT July 30, 2010
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. — A cell phone store employee talked a man out of robbing the store last Friday by talking to him about Jesus, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said a man went into the MetroPCS store on Cypress Road, pretending that he wanted to buy a cell phone.

The man talked pleasantly to 20-year-old Nayara Goncalves, the only employee in the store, before pulling a gun and demanding cash from the register, police said.
Goncalves remained calm and started talking to the man about what he was doing. BSO released the surveillance video, which captured the conversation.
I’m Christian,” Goncalves said.

“So am I, and I actually really hate doing this,” the gunman said. “I’m embarrassed to have to do this, and I have no choice.”

“You don’t have to do this,” Goncalves said.

“Talk about making it harder,” the gunman said.

“Jesus has got something way better for you, for everyone that’s out there. I’m not blaming you. I’m not judging. I don’t know what you’re going through, but all of us are going through a hard time right now, a very hard time right now,” Goncalves said.

“That’s why I refuse to do anything to anybody else,” the gunman said. “I’ve never done this before.”

Goncalves spoke to the gunman for about five minutes, even offering to help him get a job so he would not have to steal.

“I have a job,” the gunman said.

“You do? Then why are you doing this?” Goncalves said.

“Because I’m going to be evicted if I don’t come up with $300,” the gunman said.

After Goncalves talked to the man, he left without harming her or taking anything, police said.

“I’m sorry. I understand if you still have to call the police,” the gunman said as he left.

Goncalves did call police a few minutes after the man left. She told Local 10 that her faith helped prevent the robbery.

“I’m very Christian and I go to church a lot, so I just feel like I want to tell everybody about Jesus,” Goncalves said.

She said she does not believe the man was a bad person, just desperate.

BSO said the would-be robber was a white man with a mustache in his late 30s to mid-40s who was about 5 feet 9 inches tall.
