‘It’s disturbing’: author of book found in Munich shooter’s home sees pattern
Psychologist Peter Langman wrote the book Why Kids Kill and says it’s common for shooters to want to study others, but there’s no one reason for killing
The Munich teenage shooter who killed nine people and injured 27 in a mass shooting in #Germany on Friday appears to have fit a pattern among other mass murderers who researched shootings, according to the psychologist whose book was found in the gunman’s home.
“It’s a little disturbing,” said Peter Langman, who was unaware that the Munich shooter had a copy of his book until the Guardian called him at his home in Pennsylvania on Saturday. “I don’t know quite what to make of it. I don’t know why he had it,” he said.
