“He’s 19 years old, he was born in 1998, in September,” Israel said. “He was a former student of Douglas High School. He got expelled for disciplinary reasons, I don’t know the specifics. I think he might have surfaced at Taravella High School, we’re still trying to confirm that. And this morning when he woke up, whether he was a student or not, I don’t know.”

According to Fox News’ Trace Gallagher, the suspects’ social media showed that he was “fascinated by guns.”
“If you look at things like his Instagram page, you can see he’s fascinated by guns. We don’t know the type of weapon, we don’t know the power of the weapon. But we know that this suspect, if in fact it is him, is fascinated by guns, is fascinated by gun groups,” he said.
