Fox News reported Wednesday that the suspect in a shooting Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida was “fascinated by guns” and followed “Syrian resistance groups” on social media.


“If you look at things like his Instagram page, you can see he’s fascinated by guns. We don’t know the type of weapon, we don’t know the power of the weapon. But we know that this suspect, if in fact it is him, is fascinated by guns, is fascinated by gun groups,” Fox News reporter Trace Gallagher said.

“He’s also following resistance groups, like Syrian Resistance groups and fighter groups out of Iraq and, we should also note that a couple days ago, as far as a week ago, that he was involved in a Youtube chat room conversation about bombs or building bombs.” (RELATED: WATCH — Police Arrest Suspect In Florida High School Shooting)
