Texas high school shooting

https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/san...ing/index.html

Sounds like 8-10 already dead. They've found explosives, too. The assumption is that it's a white dude, I guess? I'm not seeing any reports about what kind of gun it was.

I saw reports that people had found his Facebook page before it was deleted. White...or white/ hispanic dude with a Slavic sounding name.

He had a pic of a military looking coat with communist, nazi, fundi Christian, and Pagan patches. Also bisexual pride pins. Also was a football player at the school.

Seems like an Edgelord

Never thought I'd fondly look back on the days when "dark and edgy" meant telling someone you didn't mourn your dead grandmother enough.

That's a very eclectic variety of self-identifiers.

Seems like he was using them as totems of virtue.

Like the Nazi cross was strength or something. He had a whole list about what it meant to him. I didnít save the list from my original source.

Sounds like... he is Greek?

Nothing released yet about what gun was used but I'm guessing it had to be a handgun since it sounds like... he just kind of got up and started shooting in art class? Hard to conceal an AR-15 in your backpack.

It's a shame about the word Incel.
Used to mean something other than entitled misogynistic manbaby.

Texas governor says it was the shotgun and a .38. Both legally owned by the father.

Was the shotgun sawed off?
Because I didn't think those were legal, depending on the length of the barrel.

I'm assuming sawed off enough to fit in his backpack... so definitely illegal.

Some states let you own a sawed shotgun if you buy a special permit and pay a special tax. Not sure what Texas does. Kid could have cut it this morning too. Making a legally owned shotgun an illegal weapon.
