Mass Shooter’s Actions Explained by Disturbing Photos Posted Before Attack
(TargetLiberty.org) – A mass shooter who killed two and wounded four at a St. Louis high school left a note to justify his murderous rampage. The deranged teenager had hundreds of rounds of ammunition with him — and possibly a gun that cops had already confiscated previously.

On October 24, the Central Visual and Performing Arts High School in St. Louis, Missouri, was the target of a terrifying assault by a former student, 19-year-old Orlando Harris. The gunman, who was carrying an AR15-type semi-automatic rifle and around 600 rounds of ammunition, forced his way into the school and yelled, “You’re all going to die!” as he opened fire, killing a teacher and a 15-year-old girl. Four more students suffered gunshot wounds, and three others were injured escaping through windows. Survivors say more would have died had Harris’s rifle not jammed.
Police responded quickly. The attack was reported at 9:11 a.m., and Harris was shot dead by cops 14 minutes later. A handwritten note, penned by the suspect and found at the scene, said he was carrying out the attack because he was “an isolated loner.” Several messages and images left behind on his social media account paint a disturbing picture.
Investigators are trying to track a rifle police confiscated from Harris months ago. Earlier this year, Harris’ mother, who was already worried about his mental health, learned he had acquired a rifle and asked police to take it away. Because Missouri doesn’t have a red flag law that would have allowed cops to keep the weapon, they removed it from Harris but gave it to an unnamed adult. Now they want to know if it was the same gun used in Monday’s shooting. If it was, two innocent people are dead because it fell back into his hands.
