Details start to emerge about shooter at Trump rally as investigation continues

Published on

From The Center Square

By 

Crooks graduated from Bethel Park School District in 2022. Community members said Crooks lived with his parents, according to multiple media reports.

U.S. Secret Service agents killed the 20-year-old Pennsylvania man who targeted former President Donald Trump at a rally on Saturday as investigators continue to search for a motive.

The FBI identified Thomas Matthew Crooks, 20, of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, as the shooter.

Crooks shot at Trump during a rally in Butler, Pa., Saturday evening. Trump was struck in the ear. The former president urged supporters to continue to “fight” as U.S. Secret Service agents moved him from the stage to a waiting vehicle. Trump later called for unity after the shooting.

Crooks graduated from Bethel Park School District in 2022. Community members said Crooks lived with his parents, according to multiple media reports.

Crooks crawled on the roof of a manufacturing plant about 130 yards away from the stage at Butler Farm Show grounds, The New York Post reported. He fired five to seven shots before he was shot and killed by Secret Service agents.

A local police officer confronted Crooks on the roof shortly before the assassination attempt, the Associated Press reported Sunday. When Crooks pointed his rifle at the officer, the officer retreated, the AP reported. Crooks then began shooting at Trump.

Authorities found an AR-style semi-automatic rifle at the scene. Crooks was wearing a shirt for a gun-focused YouTube channel called Demolition Ranch.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that law enforcement found explosives inside Crooks’ car, which was found parked near the Pennsylvania rally. Bomb technicians were investigating, the Journal reported.

Federal authorities have yet to reveal a motive for the shooting, but are investigating. As the work continues Sunday, investigators have made finding a motive and determining whether the shooter had accomplices top priorities.

Crooks was a registered Republican, according to state voter status records.

The shooter made one $15 donation to the liberal ActBlue political action committee on Jan. 20, 2021, which was Biden’s Inauguration Day, the Intercept reported.

Police have blocked off the streets near Crooks’ house, according to media reports.

Police Officer Encountered Shooter Before He Fired At Trump: REPORT

Published on

From the Daily Caller News Foundation

By KATELYNN RICHARDSON

 

A law enforcement officer encountered shooter Thomas Matthew Crooks before he fired at former President Donald Trump Saturday during a Pennsylvania rally, The Associated Press reported Sunday.

Crooks pointed his rifle at an officer who climbed onto the building roof, prompting him to retreat down the ladder, two anonymous law enforcement officials told the AP. Crooks then fired his weapon at Trump.

Rally attendees had earlier alerted police that a man was climbing onto the roof of a building near the rally, the two officers told AP.

Trump’s ear was wounded in Saturday’s assassination attempt. Before Secret Service rushed him off the stage, Trump gestured to the crowd by raising his fist, video shows.

One attendee, identified as former volunteer fire chief Corey Comperatore, was fatally shot Saturday. Two others were critically injured.

Butler County Sheriff Michael T. Slupe told The Washington Post Sunday that a police officer encountered Crooks moments before he fired at Trump.

A witness told BBC News during an interview Saturday that he tried to warn police about the assassination attempt after noticing “a guy crawling” up the building and seeing that he “clearly” had a rifle, but he said the police responded with confusion. The individual alleged security did nothing for several minutes.

“They didn’t know what was going on,” the witness told BBC News. “We’re like, ‘hey, right here on the roof, we can see him from right here! We can see him.
