I'm still trying to wrap my head around how he was able to kill 21 people with the police already there and after him. That certainly could be an indication that he was wearing armor.#1 BG was actively running from the police in pursuit as he had shot his gran ma.
#2 crashed his car near the school "supposedly shots fired between him and police"
#3 runs to the school that was near and starts "shooting"
school shooting but not the intended target as far as anyone knows right now.
no proof of body armor
no proof of AR "type" weapon
only hand gun and rifle.
The pictures being circulated on the web are supposedly pictures he posted of his rifles. That's a bit interesting too if it's accurate. One of those rifles was a Daniel Defense which is not exactly a cheap rifle. Not sure what the other rifle was. But the kid had a fair amount of money tied up in rifles and armor (again, if the reports are accurate). And he certainly could have saved his money but that's a decent number of shifts at the Wendy's he supposedly worked at. Most 18 year old kids aren't dropping that kind of cash on weapons.
