Transgender Suspect Arrested for Mass Shooting Plot
Authorities in Colorado have apprehended an individual who identifies as transgender and was allegedly plotting to carry out mass shootings in various schools and churches within the region. The arrest, which took place on March 31, was just made public. It occurred only a few days after the massacre at a private Christian school in Nashville, which claimed the lives of six people, including three youngsters, perpetrated by a person who also identified as transgender.
The biological male suspect, who goes by a female name and uses “she/her” pronouns, is 19 years old and has been charged with two counts of criminal attempt to commit murder in the first degree, amongst other charges including criminal mischief, menacing, and interference with staff, faculty, or students of educational institutions.
It’s believed that the suspect had Timberview Middle School, Prairie Hills Elementary, and Pine Creek High School all in their sights, in addition to several churches. He was reported to the authorities by a family member who called 911 after being informed that they had made terroristic threats relating to carrying out school shootings and exhibited severe anger problems.
The 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office indicated that the individual was in the process of transitioning. The property of the suspect was apparently unkempt, with trash scattered all over the residence, making it difficult to move about. Half-eaten food in numerous containers lined the premises, among which several alcohol bottles could be found. Holes in the walls of the house had been punched through, and a door had been ripped off its hinges.
When questioned by law enforcement personnel, the suspect apparently shook their head affirmatively to indicate that they would carry out a school shooting. According to reports, the suspect had started planning the attacks more than a month earlier and had begun writing a manifesto.
The evidence seized during the search of the house included the suspect’s manifesto, along with the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Additionally, the authorities found a notebook containing suicidal thoughts. The suspect had evidently delved into researching how to create firearms with 3D printers, developed detailed lists containing targeted people, and collected information on how to fabricate explosives.
This once again goes to show just how mentally unstable these people truly are.
