REPORT: Accused gunman in Colorado STEM school shooting says he targeted students who mocked his gender identity


A student accused in the deadly shooting at a Colorado STEM high school told police he intended to target classmates who mocked his gender identity and how he loaded up on cocaine ahead of the bloody attack, which he said he’d been planning for weeks.

The latest details on the violent incident at the STEM School Highlands Ranch were revealed Thursday in newly-released summaries of police interviews with the two alleged shooters, 16-year-old Alex McKinney, the suspected mastermind, and 18-year-old Devon Erickson.

Erickson during a police interview recalled how he received a Snapchat message from McKinney on May 6 warning him against going to school the following day. McKinney, who identifies as male, said he wanted to revenge “on a lot of people,” who called him “disgusting” and referred to him “as a she,” the younger suspect told authorities

The article goes on to state the following:

McKinney “said he wanted the kids at school to suffer from trauma like he had had in his life,” according to documents. “He wanted everyone in that school to suffer and realize that the world is a bad place.”

Police said both teenagers walked into the Douglas County high school on May 7 with a guitar case and book bag containing four guns – three handguns and rifle. Both suspects told authorities they broke into a gun safe at one of their homes, where they also did cocaine.
