The social media posts by a suspect in the STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting in Colorado included opposition to “Christians who hate gays,” criticism of President Donald Trump, and support for the left-wing Occupy Democrats.

On his now-deleted Facebook account, Devon Erickson, 18, posted: “You know what I hate? All these Christians who hate gays, yet in the bible, it says in Deuteronomy 17:12-13, if someone doesn’t do what their priest tells them to do, they are supposed to die. It has plenty of crazy stuff like that. But all they get out of it is ‘ewwwwww gays.’”

The other suspect in the shooting is a 16-year-old female who identifies as a transgender male.

In 2016, Erickson shared a video of late-night host Seth Meyers criticizing President Donald Trump before the 2016 election, and had shared an Occupy Democrats post that praised President Barack Obama.

In a post on his Instagram, Erickson posted, “I’m covered in ink and addicted to pain.”
