The Boulder Shooting Suspect Wrote About Mass Killings on Facebook. Now He’s a Suspect in One.

The alleged gunman in the Boulder, Colorado, massacre took notice of mass shootings around the world. A profile page on MaxPreps.com, a high school sports database, shows that the suspected gunman wrestled at Denver South High School until 2017. “He kept to himself most of the time,” Naylen Babeon, who was on the same wrestling team at Denver South, told VICE News. Filholm described Denver South High School as being diverse with many students from different nationalities—due in part to English language initiatives that were offered alongside regular classes. Mohamed Shawihdi, another former classmate from Denver High who was on the wrestling team, remembered that the shooter often talked about Islamophobia and racism.
