Oregon rampage killer Chris Harper Mercer was not born in the United States, reports say.
Instead, the 26 year old authorities say killed up to 10 people at an Oregon community college was born in Great Britain.
The Oregon Daily Breeze has released many new details regarding his background overseas.
According to The U.K.’s Mirror:
“A British-born gunman killed at least nine people in a US college before being fatally shot in a stand-off with police.
Chris Harper-Mercer was born in England before moving to the United States as a young boy, according to reports in America.
The 26-year-old, whose social media profiles featured content supporting the IRA, apparently demanded to know his victims’ religious beliefs before opening fire.
The killer burst into Umpqua Community College in Roseburg before slaying nine people and injuring seven.
Terrified students told how they cowered behind desks fearing for their lives as a gun maniac went on a murderous college rampage.”
After Donald Trump came under fire for comments about violent acts committed by immigrants (though Trump was talking about illegals) it will be interesting to see “The Donald’s” reaction to Harper Mercer’s British birth.
