Authorities revealed that one of the Colorado shooting suspects was motivated by “anger and revenge” and had previously posted comments professing hatred of Christians.

Authorities say 18-year-old Devon Erickson worked as a youth actor in Colorado before the Tuesday shooting that wounded nine students and killed one, according to The Denver Channel, adding that the motive for the shooting “went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school.”

Facebook posts reveal that Erickson has previously expressed hatred for Christians, according to Heavy.

“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,” Erickson wrote in one Facebook post several years ago. “But all they get out of it is ‘ewwwwww gays.’”

An examination of the suspect’s social media shows that he is from Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and likes video games, paintball, skateboarding, and The Walking Dead, according to Heavy. The publication also revealed a photo of Erickson’s Instagram profile photo of a demonic red skull smoking against a black background.

Erickson is a registered Democrat, praising Barack Obama and criticizing Donald Trump in posts on social media and putting a “celebrate pride” filter on one of his photos in 2015 according to Heavy.

The publication also reveals that a car towed from Erickson’s home “has ‘F*** SOCIETY’ spray painted on the side” as well as “‘666’ and a what looks like a pentagram sprayed on the hood.”

The shooting took place at STEM School Highlands Ranch, a charter school that serves kids in grades K-12 about 15 miles from Denverr, The Associated Press reported.
