Default How The Charleston Shooter Was Caught

All it took was a citizen with sharp eyes and the ability to keep her cool. This lady in NC deserves a lot of recognition for without her, the shooter might still be on the loose.

For the record, I'm pretty sure someone else would have eventually spotted this nimrod with that ridiculous haircut.

Good on her for following her gut.

That is true, but it's great she got him so early. Who knows what this guys plans were, he might of been close to his next target.

You would think, but he drove through Charlotte and even stopped and got gas and nobody saw him.

Who tries to elude the police by going towards the most populated part of the country?? You have some of the lowest population density areas east of the Mississippi between Columbia and Charleston. You could easily survive for a few weeks just by raiding empty houses. My guess is the kid wanted to get caught. Lots of these "mass murder" types have a deep seated craving for attention in any form they can get it. Glad he was caught though.

If he was driving through Shelby, he could have been headed to the Blue Ridge mountains to hide out. Eric Rudolph was able to stay up there for 5 or 6 years after getting on the most wanted list.

Pretty sure Rudolph had help and wasn't alone and outside all that time. This idiot starves to death inside a week out there.

I'm sure Rudolph had help too. He grew up in that area, so I would think family and friends would help him. That said, I know there are some places where it's a live and let live mindset. His sister being close enough in Shelby could have been all the help he needed.

If you get out towards the Highlands area there are lots of unoccupied vacation homes that could probably be raided. Plenty of isolated gas stations/ma and pa type stores with a pretty thin county sheriffs presence too. He took a pretty indirect route, if indeed WNC was his ultimate destination though. Kid probably didn't have much in the way of a serious escape plan.

Don't think she would have been help. She identified him to police when she saw the pictures the cops put out. I did find it interesting that he was caught 3 miles from her fiancées house. And he was not party of her wedding party.

Yep I drive through NW SC and SW NC a ton and there are places where you are 5+ miles from anyone. He could have vanished if he had wanted to. Or smart enough

He told police he was headed to Nashville. When they asked why, he said her had never been.

Don't think he had much of a plan....seems I read he thought he'd never get out of Charleston. Effed up all the way around.

Of course he didn't have a plan. He was still driving the same car more than 12 hours after the shooting happened.

He probably went home to Eastover, and when we found out that he had been identified he started driving.

Apparently he tried to commit suicide:

I didn't think it would end with him alive (Boston situation or suicide).
