Harper-Mercer targeted Christians during his shooting rampage.
In a Facebook post he’s trolling for hookers—
Chris Harper-Mercer left a note for police.
He wanted to be “embraced by the devil” and “welcomed in hell.”
The heavily armed gunman who slaughtered nine people at an Oregon college left a hate-filled note at the scene of his rampage and “felt the world was against him,” law enforcement officials confirmed Friday.
Two officials familiar with the contents of the note say 26-year-old Christopher Harper Mercer, who was killed in a firefight Thursday with police at Umpqua Community College, wrote that he would be “welcomed in Hell and embraced by the devil.”
He wrote that he was “in a bad way,” one official said. “He was depressed, sullen.”
The officials said Mercer lamented the fact that he did not have a girlfriend. “He said he had no life,” another official said, adding: “He felt the world was against him.”
Welcome to hell, Chris!
