    No Islamic connection. Shooter was Caucasian, blue eyes, was wearing military pants and a so called bomber jacket. There are rumours about shooter being an ex-soldier, but these are not confirmed or denied by the police nor local government.

      the people that shop there are 50/50 ethnic and white people. When you use a machinegun you shoot to hit just anybody and youre obviously a very sick person

    Rumours are the shooter is ex-military. One if the victims is a child. This has not been confirmed. Terrible.
