heard he was fired from Gaffey's. Not sure how the barber shop factored in nor the old Glory Days building, but that all seems like he planned those places.

The guy had no plans coming out alive, hence why he tried to burn his place.

it does look like he targeted certain places!?
WKTV web page still says no clear motive so far!?
i suppose we will have to wait and see if they ever do figure it out.

absolutely does look like each place was targeted. no way these were random locations. the victims all might not have been intended but the locations certainly were

He used to walk that block everyday at 4 am. He was planning this for a long time I bet! I won't be surprised if they find food and stuff in that building that he stashed! Poor Dog so sad......

I suspect he did have stuff stashed there for the long haul. Food, supplies, more ammo and guns. It would not surprise me if they find any or all of these there. It just seems very purposeful that he went straight there from Gaffey's. Question is was there some past connection with him to that location because he certainly did not choose it at random.

Chances are the motives all come back to the hairy triangle.

"John Seymour, one of the men wounded in the attacks told his sister, Mary Hornett, the barbershop attack came out of nowhere.

"He just said that the guys were in the barbershop and this guy comes in and he says,`Hi John, do you remember me?' and my brother said,`Yes, Kurt, how are you?' and then he just started shooting," Hornett said."

Fred, you ARE or WERE his neighbor, and you know as well as anyone what spreading rumors about someone does. I'm not trying to defend the guy, but you shouldn't fib like that. He was quiet and didnt say two words to anyone. Nor was he a stalker. No doubt this was planned, but considering his speech issue, he was probably being bullied.

His 'Bama phone charger caught fire and he needed to send a message immediately to Albany and Washington to get a new one delivered. OR

If anyone around the valley that morning had a gun on them, this worthless, cowardly, POS would have been in his grave a day sooner, and no one else would have been terrorized, injuried or murdered.

Definitely believe it was planned but I think his motive only made sense in his own mind and was trivial. I believe if it wasn't for quick response by police he would have killed more. He started the fire to distract from shooting at barber shop. Then went to Herkimer because all the first responders were in Mohawk. He pulled into the library like a bat out of hell and I believe that was his next target, but police were on his tail so he quickly took off going through the park to get to alley by glory days. This made it hard for police to find him because there are numerous abandoned buildings there. The only reason they narrowed down his location was because he shot at the police. I'm sure his motive was trivial like he got a bad haircut or had to wait too long for an oil change, he was disturbed. So don't knock the police for the overkill I truly believe they saved lives.
