More information is being reported on Connor Betts, 24, the deceased gunman who shot and killed nine people and wounded 27 others in a mass shooting early Sunday morning.
A Twitter account appearing to belong to Betts showed he supported socialist causes and was a supporter of presidential candidate Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, according to Heavy.
The Twitter biography reads, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” Tweets include praising Satan and “F— John McCain” after late Arizona Sen. John McCain died.
On the Fourth of July, in response to a tweet on “easy ways to help close detention camps,” the account linked to Betts replied, “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”
Betts reportedly did not want to vote for California Sen. Kamala Harris because “Harris is a cop,” but “Warren I’d happily vote for.”
“I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding,” read one tweet.
