A hate-fuelled killer gunned down five people in his hometown of Plymouth on Thursday night.
The killer, Jake Davison, 22, was identified Friday morning after killing five people including his mother, a 3-year-old girl, and himself.
After the tragic events of Thursday night, Davison’s home computer and social media were autopsied, with several videos and blogs seized.
His relation to American “incel” groups
His seized YouTube accounts saw the killer was obsessed with American gun culture and related to other “involuntary celibates”.
His videos also had an explicit theme of misogyny, closely related to the incel ideology.
Despite the mass shooting being the most deadly since the 2010 Cumbria Copeland shooting which saw 12 dead, the police say they are not considering any terrorist or far-right motives.
“We believe we have an incident that is domestically related, that has spilled into the street,” Devon and Cornwall Police Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer told police on Friday.
It is reported that Davison dressed in black with a pump-action shotgun. He reportedly turned the gun on his mother, before running outside and shooting a 3-year-old girl and her 43-year-old relative. He then shot at two passers-by, before entering a park and killing two more.
He then turned the gun on himself to avoid being tackled by firearms officers.
Shootings are scarce in the United Kingdom, with just two mass shootings in the 21st century. This is due to the strict anti-firearm legislature implemented by the Blair government following the Dunblane massacre in 1996, in which 16 pupils and a teacher were killed in a school.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson and local MP Luke Pollard condemned the attack.
