The White man who authorities say shot and killed a Black Air Force veteran and a retired Black state trooper in Winthrop, Massachusetts, last month carried “hate fueled by white supremacy,” according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.
Authorities say Nathan Allen, 28, stole a large truck and crashed it into another vehicle and a building in Winthrop before shooting and killing veteran Ramona Cooper, 60, and David L. Green, 58.
Allen was subsequently shot by police and taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries.
On Wednesday, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, whose office is leading the investigation, said journals recovered at Allen’s apartment depicted him as fueled by hate.
“This man had fooled so many, outwardly appearing stable and upstanding while internally filled with extremist ideologies and hatred,” Rollins said in a statement.
“White people are the worlds apex predators,” Allen wrote in his journal, according to excerpts released by the DA’s office. He also wrote, “Whites in the USA are waking up. FACT.”
Prosecutors say he returned often to the theme of White people as “apex predators,” and claimed, “Men need to kill things.”
