A bit more detail has come out about the shooting at Puzzles, the gay bar in New Bedford, MA.
Apparently 18-year-old Jacob Robida went into Puzzles with a fake ID. He ordered a drink, asked if it was “the gay bar,” then attacked a pool player with a hatchet. When other patrons attempted to stop him, he pulled out a gun and started shooting. By the time he fled, five men were wounded — three seriously.
Police managed to identify Robida as a suspect, and found his Myspace page (which I couldn’t find myself). There they found all sorts of Nazi insignia, along with a proclamation that “I’m interested in death, destruction, chaos, filth and greed.” He also goes by the charming nicknames of “Serial Killa,” “Jake Jekyll,” and “Nazi.”
His mug shot’s been circulated up and down the East Coast, and I hope the cops find him soon. And as I said yesterday, I really, really hope he resists arrest. If this twisted little shit somehow doesn’t make it to trial, I would have a hard time shedding a tear.
