The 20-year-old shooter responsible for taking the lives of 13 people on an Oregon college campus Thursday morning gave a cryptic warning online the night before.
The Sun reports that in a thread found on the online bulletin board 4CHan, the male killer told students not to go to the Umpqua Community College campus.
He wrote in the post: “Some of you guys are alright. don’t go into school tomorrow if you are in the northwest. Happening thread will be posted tomorrow morning. So long space robots.”

The gunman added another post to the site promising that “normies will pay for their misdeeds.”
He also wished the readers “an enjoyable Elliot Rodger day,” which is a reference to the man who killed six people near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara last year.

The shooter also gave some insight into his frame-of-mind, writing: “This is the only time I’ll ever be in the news. I’m so insignificant,” according to CNN.
The gunman killed at least 13 people and injured 20 others, the New York Times reports, before he was killed by police officers in a shootout.
