The 21-year-old had posted homophobic content on social media years prior to allegedly launching the sheer devastating act that saw the death of 10 people in a King Soopers store
More details about Ahmad Alissa continue to trickle in. The Boulder shooter who allegedly opened fire in a King Soopers supermarket could reportedly be anti-LGBTQ. The 21-year-old had reportedly posted homophobic content on social media prior to launching the sheer devastating act that saw the death of 10 people.
Previously, a bunch of revelations about Alissa came to light with one of them describing him to be a "loner". His brother-in-law, Usame Almusa said, "Every time I visited my wife’s family he would always sit away from everyone else, not saying anything to anyone," recalling how Ahmad acted when he and his wife saw him. "He was a loner, just sitting to the side, not with us. It was strange."
Was Ahmad Alissa anti-LGBTQ?
Although his social media accounts have been taken down, there were enough details about his love for sports and struggles with mental illnesses that most media outlets managed to grab hold of. According to an LGBTQ Nation report, Alissa has regularly used the words "f*g" and "f****t" on his pages.
Last July, the shooter reportedly mocked Microsoft's rainbow-colored Xbox logo: “F**box loses PS4 wins” along with laughing emojis. Further evidencing was when he wrote, "God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve just saying."
Another post said, “Isn’t weird people who are always smiling and acting like they are having fun some of the most depressed people on earth." There were similar posts: “And then people like me who don’t bulls**t everything as in don’t fake smile or just act normal are some of the happiest. #stillhappy #stopactinglike a f** #donttakeanyones***”
Earlier, we had reported on Alissa calling himself a wrestler who was trying to "make the world a better place."A Westworld report said, "Judging from his posts, AIissa appears to be a fan of mixed martial arts as well as other athletic endeavors. A photo from April 2016 shows him walking on a wrestling mat while wearing an Arvada West uniform."
The victims have been identified by police as Denny Stong, 20, Neven Stanasic, 23, Rikki Olds, 25, Tralona Bartkowiak, 49, Suzanne Fountain, 59, Teri Leiker, 51, Officer Talley, 51, Kevin Mahoney, 61, Lynn Murray, 62 and Jody Waters, 65.
"Our hearts go out to all of the victims killed during this senseless act of violence. We are committed to a thorough investigation and will bring justice to each of these families," Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said in a statement. "The Boulder community is strong and compassionate, and I know we will come together to take care of each other during this time."
Alissa, a resident of Arvada, near Denver, was arrested before 3.30 pm local time on March 22. He was injured during a gunfire exchange with police when officers first entered the King Soopers. Boulder police said he was in stable condition and was moved to a jail in Boulder.
