    It does not fit the usual narrative that some loser hating his life decides to go out in a blaze of Allah Akbar when the guy is a wealthy man who owns a lot of property. So what can explain this so that it makes any sense? All that is hitting on all cylinders is that this guys wife converted him to jihadism and then fled the country, but he was supposed to be a lone gunman?

    Then why did he bring so much ammo to the room and so many guns? That doesnt make any sense unless he was expecting people to help him. What else does?

    How did the two hispanic women who tried to warn people know he was going to start the shooting and who are they? If they saw him, how did they live to tell? If they had inside information, how does that happen with a lone gunman?

    This video sounds like here were tow shooters, one with a larger caliber gun and the other with what sounds like a .223

    I am getting a feeling that this was not a lone gunman but instead there were multiple shooters in a group of multiple supporters from which the two women trying to warn everyone emerged.

    Any *constructive* thoughts on this?

    Thats only one weapon. The guy obviously had trouble reloading. You can tell by how fast he runs out of ammo it was just one weapon at a time.

    This is going to be a more complex story than a lone gunmen I think.

    Too many things not adding up.

    He had two windows that he was shooting from and went from window to window. He had so many guns he didn't need to reload. The police are going around getting all the bullets that were removed and will match them to the guns.

    What if he did have assistants that fled before the shooting started because they got scared?

    Or what if they left this guy as the fall guy after helping with the shooting?

    We have too little information to start making declarations about motive. Of course, that doesn't stop a lot of assholes from politicizing the situation in order to promote their favorite narrative.

    Somehow, I get the feeling these thoughts aren't actually random, but rather are specifically tailored to a very narrow agenda. Huh, must be me.

    True, not all the facts are out yet, but some of the incongruent facts are suggestive of much more going on here.
