Is it true as reported that the shooter is a Goth? That's a form of satan worship.

A priest of Polish background told a relevant story here. He went back to Poland to visit the town his family was from. And they showed him around, and at one point showed him the cemetery. He said that he would remember them in his prayers.

Then they showed him the part of the cemetery where children were buried, and he said thank you for showing him this part of the cemetery because he would remember the children in his prayers. And the people said 'No, you don't understand, the children pray for us.'
