Gun­man posted dur­ing bar at­tack

New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - OBITUARIES/NEWS -

The gun­man who killed 12 peo­ple at a coun­try mu­sic bar in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia went on so­cial me­dia dur­ing the at­tack and posted about his men­tal state and whether peo­ple would be­lieve he was sane, a law en­force­ment of­fi­cial said Fri­day.

Also, one of the pos­si­bil­i­ties in­ves­ti­ga­tors are look­ing into is whether gun­man Ian David Long be­lieved his for­mer girl­friend would be at the bar, the of­fi­cial said.

Au­thor­i­ties have not de­ter­mined a mo­tive for Wed­nes­day’s night ram­page at the Border­line Bar & Grill.

Nei­ther Face­book nor In­sta­gram had any im­me­di­ate com­ment.

The Florida man ac­cused of send­ing pipe bombs to prom­i­nent crit­ics of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump was in­dicted Fri­day on charges car­ry­ing a po­ten­tial manda­tory penalty of life in prison.

The 30-count in­dict­ment against Ce­sar Sayoc was handed up in Man­hat­tan fed­eral court, where Sayoc made an ini­tial ap­pear­ance ear­lier this week af­ter he was brought to New York.

Sayoc, 56, was ar­rested Oct. 26 in Plan­ta­tion, Fla., on five charges car­ry­ing a po­ten­tial sen­tence upon con­vic­tion of nearly 50 years. If con­victed of all charges in the in­dict­ment, Sayoc would face a manda­tory life prison sen­tence.
