Salvador Ramos, 18, harassed people online on social media and made other threats ahead of Tuesday’s tragic shooting that killed 19 children and two teachers, Sky News reported.
“People joined Leben and said, ‘Oh, hey, look, it’s Yubo’s school shooter,'” an unidentified 17-year-old on the platform told Sky News. Yubo is a live streaming social video app.

The 17-year-old also said, according to the report, that Ramos would “just harass people… and threaten rape, kidnapping and murder.”
Ramos may also have been proud of the “school shooter” nickname as he didn’t correct people for using it, the user said.
“He never tried to turn that moniker off, he almost seemed proud of it, you know,” she added, according to the report.
The unidentified youth also hinted that the text messages and subsequent interactions on the platform were red flags that could have prevented Tuesday’s shooting.
“I won’t lie, he was bullied on the app. It’s almost a high school community. There are losers, there are popular people there. It’s strange to explain. When he joined life most people would say ‘Yubo’s School Shooter’ [because] he was known to be weird,” she said, per Sky News.

The news also shows Ramos bragging about buying a gun and telling a chat room with people that certain people “deserve to be raped.”
Ramos also messaged the 17-year-old privately, saying: “I would adore you” before telling her to “jump off a bridge” after she didn’t reply, she told Sky News. Ramos then allegedly followed his actions by finding the girl’s real name and personal cell phone, whom he texted harassingly, text messages show.
