A CRAZED gunman who slaughtered five people including a child in a bloody rampage has been revealed as a “virgin incel loner”.

Jake Davison, 22, moans about how he is “getting uglier” each year and said he was “defeated by life” in chilling YouTube videos.

The crane operator shot himself dead yesterday after gunning down a woman, believed to be his mum, in Plymouth.

Davison also killed a three-year-old girl, a second woman and a male bystander during the horror.

His YouTube page has revealed the mass-murderer as a rambling gun nut who follows the “Incel” movement.

He likes Incel TV – an online support group for “involuntary celibates” that is linked to male supremacy and misogyny.

Incels believe they have no possibility of finding a partner to get love, validation or acceptance from.

  • IOPC TO INVESTIGATE POLICE OVER JAKE DAVISON’S RETURNED SHOTGUN AND CERTIFICATE

    The Independent Office for Police Conduct has said it will investigate Devon and Cornwall Police over Plymouth shooter Jake Davison’s possession of a shotgun and shotgun certificate, which were returned to him last month after being removed in December 2020 following an allegation of assault.

  • FORMER CHIEF CONSTABLE ON RETURNING REVOKED GUN LICENCES

    Sir Peter Fahy, former chief constable of Greater Manchester Police, said investigators will have to look into what enquiries were made into Plymouth gunman Jake Davison before his firearms licence was returned to him.

    When asked on BBC Breakfast if it was “reasonable” for someone’s licence to to be returned to them within a year of being revoked, he said it depended on the “circumstances of the case”.

    Sir Peter added: “There may have been one particular incident that person has overcome and further enquiries show that that person is not a threat with a firearm and, therefore, the firearm can be returned.

    “Obviously, in hindsight, in light of this incredible tragedy, that decision now looks very, very questionable.

    “But the investigators will have to look at what information was available to the police at that time and how far their investigations at that time went.”

  • PRITI PATEL SAYS SHE WAS ‘FULLY AWARE OF WHAT WAS GOING ON’ DESPITE LACK OF SECURITY MINISTER

    The Home Secretary denied that a lack of security minister had made it more difficult for the Government to keep a grasp on developing issues, such as the killings that happened in Plymouth.

    James Brokenshire resigned as security minister on July 7 following a resurgence of lung cancer, an illness he was first diagnosed with two years ago.

    Priti Patel told broadcasters: “I would say that that is absolutely not the case. I am the Home Secretary and I oversee these security issues, and I have been doing that throughout. That is nothing to do in relation with the comment you have made.

    “I’ve been kept fully updated and on all issues, all incidences, including those types of issues and incidences that don’t even reach the public awareness and consciousness. I’m fully sighted and fully aware of everything that goes on.”

  • YOUTUBE CONFIRMS IT HAS TAKEN DOWN ACCOUNT BELONGING TO JAKE DAVISON

    YouTube has confirmed an account belonging to Plymouth shooting suspect Jake Davison has been terminated from the platform, for violating its offline behaviour policy.

  • NO TERROR THREAT

    Yesterday’s horror was the first “active shooter” rampage seen in the UK for 11 years since cabbie Derrick Bird murdered 12 people in Cumbria in June 2010.

    Devon and Cornwall Police have confirmed they are not treating the mass shooting as terror-related.

    They said three female victims had died along with three males – including Davison.

  • FIRST ACTIVE SHOOTER IN 11 YEARS

    The Plymouth rampage was the first time an active shooter has been on the loose in the UK since Derrick Bird’s killing spree in west Cumbria on June 2, 2010.

    Twelve people died including the gunman, his twin brother David and the family’s solicitor.

    After first murdering his brother and a colleague, the 52-year-old taxi driver drove through rural west Cumbria and fired at random people on country roads and in villages before finally killing himself.

    Bird was said to have argued with colleagues on the taxi rank the night before and told one: “You won’t see me again.”

    Eleven victims survived the shooting but some ended up with life-changing injuries.

    The horror left a lasting mark on the victims’ families and friends as well as those who witnessed the rampage.

  • GUNMAN WAS A FOLLOWER OF THE ‘INCEL’ MOVEMENT

    Jake Davison’s YouTube page has revealed the mass-murderer as a rambling gun nut who follows the “Incel” movement.

    He likes Incel TV – an online support group for “involuntary celibates” that is linked to male supremacy and misogyny.

    Incels believe they have no possibility of finding a partner to get love, validation or acceptance from. The movement has been labelled a “hate” group with many followers accused of believing they are owed sex by women.

    In turn, this makes some Incels want to strike out at the world because they have been rejected by girls, while others blame attractive men for their perceived problems.

    The community gained worldwide attention when British-born student Elliot Rodger, 22, murdered six people at the University of California in 2014.

    Before signing off, he said: “I know it’s a movie but I like to think sometimes I’m the Terminator or something. Despite reaching almost total system failure he keeps trying to accomplish his mission.”

    Davison also likes Incel TV – an online support group for “involuntary celibates” that is linked to male supremacy and misogyny.
