    Eyewitness Sharron, who lives near Biddick Drive and did not want to give her full name, said what happened was "horrendous and so sad".

    "Firstly, there was shouting, followed by gunshots - three possibly four to begin with," she said.

    "This was when the shooter kicked in the door of a house and randomly started shooting ... He ran from the house shooting as he ran and proceeded to shoot at a few people in the linear park up from the drive."

    She said the "shooter proceeded along Royal Navy Avenue still shooting".

    Another witness, Robert Pinkerton, said he "walked around the corner" and "bumped into a bloke with a shotgun". He said the man was dressed all in black.

    From looking through his liked pages there are a LOT of gun related pages on there. He also appears to have fallen down a right wing political rabbit hole, with lots of pages related to Trump and other right wing populist political figures on there.

    A child under 10 has been confirmed as one of the victims. Unbelievably tragic.

    His FB says he's from USA. I wonder if it's true. Or he's wanting to be from USA.

    Just checking out his Facebook and you don’t have to be a genius to work out who the victims are :( reading his posts, he likes fishing, guns, far right nonsense and talks a lot about toxic people

    There's going to be more horrifying details about this in the coming hours I'm sure :( wondering where the firearm came from, and if it was held legally.

    Yeah his nationality appears unclear. I think provably British?

    Jeez only watch a few minutes of the latest videos. Clearly very depressed but also an incel. His initial victims are making more sense now....he obviously resented anyone settled down with a happy family life. Because he was 24 and it was too late for him

    When is a terrorist not a terrorist? The line is very thin here. Appears he was inspired heavily by incel 'culture' and hatred towards women.

    YouTube have pulled the account at the speed of light.

    This is a really tragic situation - he clearly needed help and serious intervention.
