Published on Jun 11, 2017
EATON TOWNSHIP, PENNSYLVANIA — A supermarket employee shot three co-workers dead before turning the gun on himself at a Weis Market in Pennsylvania on Thursday.
Gunman Randy Stair, 24, uploaded a video to social media before the killing, which suggested the murder-suicide was planned over a period of time.
Stair, who went by the name Andrew Blaze online, posted a lengthy video to YouTube just hours before the attack, saying it was his last production,
The video includes him loading a shotgun and images of the supermarket where he later went on a shooting rampage.
Stair spent the first 90 minutes of his shift blocking entrances and exits so that no one could escape from the supermarket, police said, according to ABC-affiliate WNEP. Once the preparation was done, Stair took out two pistol grip shotguns from a duffle bag and started shooting.
Stair fired more than 50 shots throughout the store, killing three of his co-workers.
He then turned the gun on himself and was later found dead of an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
In a chilling suicide note posted online, Stair said he was a girl trapped in a man’s body. He said he didn’t belong on this planet, needed to die, and would take down whoever he could with him.
