Purse in Fla. school board shooting on display

Purse used during Florida school board shooting is on public display at Panhandle library By The Associated Press

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) ' The handbag a Florida school board member used to smack a man holding other school board members at gunpoint is on display in the Panhandle.

Ginger Littleton's Brahmin purse was auctioned online for more than $13,000 in December. Littleton wasn't able to disarm the gunman, but the purse became a hit. A security guard shot and wounded the gunman, Clay Duke, who then killed himself.

Littleton and the purse will be the guests of honor at a fundraiser Thursday for the Panama City Beach library. The bag is on display at the library with other items that will be auctioned, though officials tell The News Herald ( the purse won't be up for bids.
