The suspected shooter who opened fire and killed 10 people at Santa Fe High School in Texas on Friday was identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis.
The 17-year-old is believed to have made a series of disturbing posts on social media in the weeks prior to the attack that killed at least eight people at the campus early Friday.
One post on Pagourtzis’ Facebook page dated April 30 showed a black T-shirt emblazoned with the phrase, “Born to Kill,” and a caption that read, “Custom T-Shirt.”
Another post was of a trench coat covered with pins including an Iron Cross, a German military decoration favored by Adolph Hitler.
“Hammer and Sickle=Rebellion/Rising Sun=Kamikaze Tactics/Iron Cross=Bravery,” a caption to the photo read.
His Facebook page was eventually pulled Friday after the shooting.
According to CW39 Houston, students reported seeing a student wearing a trench coat, army boots and a “Born to Kill” T-shirt at the campus Friday.

Students told the outlet that shortly after seeing the suspected shooter, they heard a fire alarm and a series of shots.
Pagourtzis was taken into custody after unleashing the gunfire. Authorities are questioning a second student.
Investigators were searching a mobile home in the 19000 block of Highway 6 Friday where Pagourtzis is believed to reside, KHOU11 reported.
