Totally 100% Random Easter Shooting

Star Beacon:

Children screamed in terror and hid under the pews at Hiawatha Church of God in Christ on Sunday, witnesses said, as an Ashtabula man was shot and killed by his son just after the Easter service.


“Witnesses at the scene said the shooter entered church and made some references to Allah, but we are not sure if that was a motive or if there was a family problem, Stell said. “We have no motive confirmed with family members. There is no indication that the father and son had a bad relationship. Everyone thinks this was very surprising.”

The suspect Reshad Riddle's facebook account is here. Googling the profile name brings up a reference to Genesis, Cain and Able for one.

It appears he is a jailhouse revert to Islam and also gangsta.

Reshad Riddle’s Facebook wall is private, but several photo links with comments are visible publicly. In those comments, Reshad Riddle mentions God, Allah and the Bible. Ten hours before the shooting, Reshad Riddle commented on his own horoscope, “Is skripture into flesh, As they kame before me.”

At the same time, Reshad Riddle also posted a photo about getting mad with the note “They bout to find out how real” with the word “scripture” and several numbers.

Hat Tip: Sooper Mexican.
