The media framing of the file information may be misleading – research in this area speaks to multiple targets and diffusion during the planning stages. It could well be that there were other attacks/targets/weapons of choice in the mix but this is the one he chose to mount. Especially given the final act behavior preceding the attack i.e. farewell to friends on social media and memorializing with staged photos etc. Most other multiple crime scene sprees have either begun at home with family victims and then extended to other locations or have been successive attacks in multiple public locations.
