Boulder Shooting Suspect Ahmad Al-Issa Posted Anti-Trump Messages

DM

Ahmad Al-Issa has been named by multiple sources as the suspect in the shooting that killed 10 in Boulder, Colorado yesterday. A motive hasn’t been identified yet, but we’ll update this story as we get information. Ahmad Al-Issa’s purported Facebook page, which has now been removed, included a lot of anti-Trump messaging, as well as pro-Islam messages. He also appeared to be a reader of PBS, The Intercept, and The Washington Post. Like clockwork, the narrative is already shifting to “mental illness,” with Al-Issa’s brother calling him “very anti-social” and paranoid, adding that, in high school, he would describe “being chased, someone is behind him, someone is looking for him.” Ali Aliwi Al-Issa told The Daily Beast:“When he was having lunch with my sister in a restaurant, he said, ‘People are in the parking lot, they are looking for me.’ She went out, and there was no one. We didn’t know what was going on in his head,” Alissa said, admitting that he believes his brother is mentally ill.
