The suspect accused of shooting dead a library supervisor last week has reportedly a history of threats towards librarians in was arrested several times for disturbances in St Louis libraries.

Ronald Seay, 56, allegedly shot Amber Clark, 41, multiple times in the head as she sat in her car in the parking lot of the Sacramento library where she worked. The suspected had been involved in a disturbance in the same library on October, 13 and had been issued a no-trespass order.

Before arriving in California, Seay had been barred from at least two libraries in St. Louis-area. Scott Bonner, a St. Louis library director, still remembers his confrontations with Seay and how he used to threaten him: "He was here in the library and couldn’t find his wallet. He decided that staff had stolen it."
