STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting: Adult and juvenile suspects due in court Wednesday afternoon

Source: Denver Post

Devon Erickson’s Facebook page says he lives in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. John Fenton, a news producer with CBS Denver, wrote that the “car towed from #stemshooting suspect’s home apparently has ‘F*** SOCIETY’ spray painted on the side. Also ‘666’ and a what looks like a pentagram sprayed on the hood.” The sheriff said the “graffiti on” the car is still being analyzed. He said he had no specific information on “what it means or where it came from.”

The second suspect was not named, but the sheriff said in a May 8 press conference that suspect two is a “juvenile female.” Erickson will appear in court at 1:30 p.m. on May 8. It’s not clear when the juvenile will appear in court. “We originally thought the juvenile was a male by appearance,” the sheriff said. “I did the press release very early on before the detectives were able to get medical… were able to speak to her.”

The Denver Channel wrote that multiple sources say “the second suspect, who is a minor, is a transgender male who was in the midst of transitioning from female to male.” The motive, the station alleges, “went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school,” adding that one suspect “was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy.”

Erickson’s social media pages show he is a fan of videogames, paintball, skateboarding, and The Walking Dead. His Facebook posts indicated that he was a guitar-playing youth theater actor who once sent his resume to TWD. His Instagram page highlights a more recent look that matches scanner dispatch reports that indicated a suspect had purple or pink hair (that’s the photo on left above). Asked on Instagram if he’d turned his hair blonde, he wrote, “it was purple then pink for a little too 😂.” On Twitter, he indicated, “I make music I guess.” He filled a YouTube channel with videos showing him singing cover songs and playing the guitar. That page gives his Snapchat account name as “devonkillz.”

1. God, this will be another "People had to die because I got bullied!" won't it?

2. What about the bullies, though? Shouldn't all involved face up to their responsibilities ...

shooters and bullies?

5. I refuse to believe there's any insult or threat or epithet a bully could spit out

that justifies shooting folks.

Nevermind the fact that there are always folks who didn't bully anyone who seem to get shot as well...

If bullies have to face up to their "responsibilities", then so do the girls who reject these boys for the homecoming dance or whatever

4. As horrible as things have become for LGBT kids in conservative areas

I'm honestly surprised more haven't snapped like this. Typically they commit suicide b/c they can't take the constant harrassment & physical attacks. And now they have the GOP explicitly giving Christians permission to be even worse, as nasty as they please based on their "religious beliefs". Is it really surprising when someone [who feels] cornered fights back?

3. I get the feeling they're going to look at this and say, "Look, we got our pictures in the paper!"

"We won! We're famous now!"
