That’s true, too.

It’s popular in Puerto Rico.

Dayton shooting: What we know about the gunman
Quote:
Connor Betts, the man authorities say killed nine people and injured 26, was bullied when he was a student at a suburban Dayton, Ohio, high school.

A classmate, Laura Wakeley, said that Betts responded by making up a list of people at the school he wanted to shoot in 2010 or 2011. "He had a plan to shoot up the high school," she told reporters near the home of Betts' parents.

Betts is accused of killing his sister, Megan, 22, during the shooting spree early Sunday morning in Dayton's Oregon entertainment district. School officials eventually let Connor Betts back into school, she said. The Betts family has lived in Bellbrook "for a number of years," said Police Chief Doug Doherty, adding that the Betts "are long-time residents."

Other details about the life and possible motive of shooter Betts, 24, were coming into focus on Sunday afternoon.

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said Betts wore body armor and was armed with a "high capacity" assault-style rifle and extra magazines.

Online records show that Betts had at least two minor run-ins with Ohio law enforcement authorities.

In February 2014, the Centerville Police Department charged him with driving 58 miles per hour in a 40 miles per hour zone. He received a court waiver for the minor misdemeanor, the records show.

Similarly, Centerville Police charged him with driving 51 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone in June 2013. Betts also received a court waiver for that misdemeanor, the records show.

When I was a teen I read a lot of science fiction. One novel, set in the distant future had as a common occurrence people who went nuts, climbed up on tall buildings and shot people randomly. I remember thinking how awful that would be and I hoped it would never happen in my time....

Dayton Daily News

Quote:
Within 20 seconds, officers had engaged with the shooter and within 30 seconds he was “neutralized”, Biehl said. Police are showing videos and playing 911 calls received into dispatch. The suspect, Connor Betts, was wearing a mask, body armor and hearing protection. He used a .223 caliber rifle with rounded, circular ammo barrels, Biehl said.

One victim was shot in an alley before shooting and killing eight others on East Fifth Street. The suspect was shot and killed by officers as he attempted to run into Ned Peppers, video shown by police during the update shows.

A 2007 gray Toyota Corolla was the vehicle the suspect drove and was parked nearby.

Biehl said it is too early in the investigation to speculate on a motive.

Quote:
Authorities have found writings linked to Dayton, Ohio, shooting suspect Connor Betts that show he had an interest in killing people, two federal law enforcement sources told CNN. A preliminary assessment of the writings, found during the execution of a search warrant, did not indicate any racial or political motive, the sources said.

Supposedly, this guy had problems. He was bullied around 2011, apparently—and he had made plans to shoot up a school.

I've since learned on the news that the guy had written a white nationalist rant on the internet shortly before going on his killing spree. I personally think he was immediately inspired by what had happened in Texas only hours before.

Turn on CNN, unless you've blocked that channel.

Maybe it was a quest commentator making that link.
IMHO the targeting and background of the shooter is more suggestive of misogyny/Incel or personal beef then white nationalism. We shall see.

It is a possibility that someone may have misspoken when one of the talking heads was giving an opinion about the two incidents. If that's CNN's story, I'll trust them to make trustworthy reporting.
