Authorities told The Buffalo News that the suspect corresponded with at least six people in an online chatroom before the attack, one of whom was the former agent.
Officials said the suspect invited members of the chatroom to read a plan about 30 minutes before the attack, according to The Buffalo News.
It's unclear what institution the former agent — who hasn't been identified — worked for or whether the person accepted the invitation to read about the plan.

18 year olds can get Credit Cards, though.
And if you're an 18 year old psychotic looking to kill as many people as possible with the least amount of technical skill, and no thought of ever paying off a credit card debt....
Buying expensive guns is as easy as finding someone willing to sell them to you.
Might even be legal, in some parts.
This story was first reported by The Buffalo News. Law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation told News 4 the former federal agent was among a small group of people to have regular interactions online with the gunman.

Was the chat room setup for white supremacists to communicate with each other? Was the Agent a white supremacist? Is this further proof that white supremacists are in fact an organized terrorist group that need to be delt with or else massacres of our brown communities will continue?

My question would be how many were Feds driving an agenda to perform a crime as we have seen in instances such as the MI Governor kidnapping plot.
How many times have we had Feds goading fools into performing crimes?

I do believe that both may have been influenced by some type of drugs.

I don't think they'd give a newly minted 18 year old a $7-8,000 line of credit. It's been a while but usually you start with maybe a $1,00 limit at most then they increase it as you build your credit score.

Of course they knew beforehand. Just like Uvalde. Teenagers generally can't afford high end AR style rifles. Hell I make 50k a year and could only responsibly afford a PSA PA-15 for my wife and even that with optic and laser sight ran me $1100. These shootings glow brighter than my LED grow lights, just saying.
