Just a few hours before he opened fire in a packed Indiana food court on Sunday evening, 20-year-old gunman Jonathan Sapirman appears to have made chilling posts on 4chan that warned of his plan and invoked Nazi imagery.
Sapirman, 20, walked to the Greenwood Park Mall from his apartment on Sunday with three legally purchased guns—two assault rifles and a handgun. He spent an hour in a bathroom, then walked out into the food court and fatally shot three people, all of Hispanic origin, before 22-year-old “good Samaritan” Elisjsha Dicken shot him dead from long-range with a handgun.
Sapirman’s motive remains unclear; his family said he was being evicted from his apartment, had recently quit his warehouse job, and had been frequenting a gun range. Greenwood Police said he began buying firearms from local gun stores in March.
