I can't make heads or tails of this.

They say he was a prohibited person, but no one in the home had a criminal record. Mental health?

Supposedly the police just showed up at 4:30 AM and started firing into the home unannounced, killing him and injuring his pregnant girlfriend.

He was said to have posted about cryptocurrency and III% on social media. All the stories I'm seeing are identical - wire service, I assume.

That's true. Won't rule it out, but a 21 year-old professional living at home sleeping with his pregnant girlfriend isn't the demographic my mind goes to for DV.

Hopefully more information will be forthcoming.

Ironically, if it WAS a mental prohibition, they may never be able to say that because of HIPPA is my very limited understanding.

Update.

The police have issued a statement. They say he "confronted" them, but this is at odds with all eyewitness accounts. BUT they must be pretty confident in saying this knowing they're going to have to produce bodycam footage.

We'll have to see how it plays out.

Also, photos if the five weapons siezed.
