Police identify suspect in Colorado school shooting: Reports
Social-media profile suggests teen hated Christians and Trump, called himself a grunge fan 'addicted to pain'
 By Victor Morton - The Washington Times - Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Authorities have identified one of the two suspects in a shooting Tuesday at a public charter school in Colorado just eight miles from Columbine High School.

... The suspected shooters, both male students, were taken into custody, Spurlock said during a press conference Tuesday evening. Authorities later told local ABC affiliate KMGH they had recovered three handguns and a rifle, though the latter was not part of the shooting, and said they were looking for more guns.

Late Tuesday night police identified one of the suspects as 18-year-old Devon Erickson but declined to give any more details or photos “as it could jeopardize this critical ongoing investigation,” the department said in a short statement.

The second suspect, an unnamed minor, “is a transgender male in the midst of transitioning from female to male,” reported KMGH Denver late Tuesday night, quoting “multiple sources close to the investigation.”

The motive may have been linked to “revenge and anger toward others at the school,” KMGH said, adding that at least one of the two alleged shooters had been involved in drug use, both legal and illegal, and had undergone therapy. ...

The irony here is that this was a science-oriented school. For all the trash-talk Christians get, the alleged bullying that supposedly sparked this attempted massacre was from science-minded teens rooted in biological fact.

More than likely, the shooters were the real bullies and they just carried it to the extreme. Violence against people who don't agree with you is acceptable now because it is OK to punch a Nazi.
Hahahahaha....No seriously. Who is the President?

Apparently she is too young to have her name revealed, but not too young to have elective life-altering procedures. 

If this is true, as far as I'm concerned, her parents will have been complicit in this from having encouraged their daughter's mental illness.

Once again, rather than running and hiding in place several brave young men took action against the shooter.  One lost his life confronting the evil doer, the other was able to take him down and disarm him.  No doubt, like in last weeks shooting that claimed the life of the ROTC cadet, these actions saved lives.

Devon Erikson

Devon is a quite common first name for a black male. IF that is the case, the media is now dropping coverage like they are holding molten steel in their bare hands.

"On social media, Devon Erickson, a registered Democrat, expressed hatred for some Christians, and shared posts criticizing Donald Trump and praising Barack Obama, which you can see later in this article."

Man that site is full of info on that kid.  Why is it the 'signs" of a troubled person are there to be seen, but yet are ignored?

Updates at the heavy.com story- a car with "F*ck Society" 666and a pentagram was towed from one of the suspects homes after the bomb squad cleared it.

Also the identity of the hero student who tackled the shooter and died while he saved others.

Devon Erickson: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
 

    By Jessica McBride   

    Updated May 8, 2019 at 8:47am
 

Devon Erickson, an 18-year-old high school student who has worked as a youth actor in Colorado, was identified by authorities as one of the two shooters accused of wounding nine students in a K-12 STEM school located in Douglas County. One of those students, 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo, died in the attack.

One shooter pulled a gun out of a guitar case in a classroom and opened fire, two parents whose children were in the school described to different media outlets. Although authorities had not yet named Kendrick Castillo, his father confirmed to NBC News that he was the student who died. A Telemundo correspondent reported that Castillo “died as a hero, faced the gunmen…seeking to save the lives of his companions.”

Maya McKinney, second Colorado shooting suspect, identifies as male named Alec
By Yaron Steinbuch

The second suspect in the Colorado school shooting, Maya McKinney, was listed in court records as a 16-year-old female, but identifies as a male and prefers to be called Alec.

McKinney was shackled at the wrists and ankles Wednesday when he appeared in court and responded to the judge’s questions in a clear but quiet voice, saying, “Yes, your honor,” and, “No, your honor.” His mother sat at his side.

The teen’s lawyers asked that the pronoun “he” be used for their client.

District attorney George Brauchler said he hasn’t decided whether to file adult charges against McKinney, whose age is the youngest at which Colorado law allows prosecutors to file adult charges without a judge’s review. ... More at NY Post
That's right dear, go on to serve your sentence in a prison full of men and see just how much fun that will be.

Another shooting by mentally ill kids. Obviously known to be troubled. Wonder about psychoactive drugs.

Almost every mass shooting has involved either someone who had 'religious reasons' (jihad) or who was actively taking (or not on their meds) psychoactive drugs, from prescribed SSRIs and MAOIs to street drugs.

There are a few out there who have had solely political agendas, but they are in the minority.

This is the Daily Mail, so take this with a grain of salt, but...

The Mexican father of alleged Colorado school shooter (Maya) McKinney, 16, was jailed for domestic violence and deported TWICE, with his (daughter) posting how he missed him just days before the atrocity

The Daily Mail article has all kinds of interesting info. The girl shooter, the one who thinks she's a boy, was born to a 16-year-old (or younger mother), whose relationship with the illegal immigrant-drug abusing father is rocky, at best. This kid never had a chance at a normal life.

Sure looks that way.  And, since "transgenderism" is being pushed so hard a confused and unhappy youngster just might think that defines their problems.  Sad all around.
