The Smoking Gun is reporting that the Minnesota teenager responsible for Monday's (March 21) high-school shooting spree created a violent, blood-soaked video last year that included an animated character shooting four people and blowing up a police car before committing suicide. Using the alias "Regret," Jeff Weise, 16, last October posted online a 30-second animation entitled "Target Practice". Click here to view Weise's crudely animated Flash production. Weise posted a second short, "Clown", several weeks after uploading "Traget Practice" to a popular multimedia web site. The 50-second "Clown" ends with one character apparently being strangled by the clown.
In a brief bio accompanying his Flash animations, Weise described himself as "nothin but a Native American teenage-stoner-industrialist," whose favorite movies included "Dawn of the Dead", "Thunderheart", and "Lakota Woman". His favorite recording artists included KORN, MARILYN MANSON, RAMMSTEIN, and JOHN LENNON.
The web page with links to Weise's two Flash animations includes his photo and an e-mail address that the teen used when posting 34 comments on a neo-Nazi web site, where Weise used the handles "nativenazi" and "todesengel," which translates to "angel of death" in German.
According to police, Weise's killing rampage began with the murder of his grandfather and the man's female companion and ended at Red Lake High School, where he killed an unarmed security guard, a teacher, and five fellow students before apparently committing suicide. Seven others were wounded, including two teenage victims who remain in critical condition at a North Dakota hospital.
