Transgender Teenager Accused Of Planning School Shootings in Colorado, Had Also Listed Churches As “Targets”

A trans-identified male teenager is in custody on suspicion he was planning on carrying out mass shootings at schools in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

William Whitworth, 19, was arrested on March 31 on charges that included suspicion of attempted first-degree murder after he admitted to planning to commit shootings at schools in the Colorado Springs area. Whitworth was born male but uses “she/her” pronouns and refers to himself as “Lilly” or “Lily.”

Eric Ross, a spokesperson for the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, has confirmed that Whitworth s transitioning from male to “female.”

Police were called to Whitworth’s residence after his sister called and claimed that he was behaving violently and had made references to school shootings. According to an affidavit obtained by The Gazette, Whitworth’s sister used “she/her” pronouns to refer to her brother.

When police arrived, they found Whitworth drunk in his room, which was littered with filth. The house was in extreme disrepair, and deputies noted that “there was trash piled up all around the house to where it made it hard to walk inside.”

The arrest record continues: “There were numerous containers filled with half eaten food with mold growing inside and numerous alcoholic beverage containers laying around the house.”

Deputies did locate a “manifesto” with the names of mass shooters while searching Whitworth’s home.

They also found a notebook with instructions on how to make firearms using a 3D printer and how to build rudimentary bombs. Whitworth admitted to watching YouTube videos on how to craft a detonator, according to the affidavit obtained by The Gazette.

Amongst Whitworth’s belongings was a whiteboard with a floor plan to Timberview Middle School, which he described as a “main target,” but Prairie Hills Elementary and Pine Creek High School were reportedly also listed as “targets” in one of Whitworth’s other notebooks. He was in possession of a “detailed” hit list of people he was planning to murder.

Whitworth also told police that churches were among his other “targets.”

When police asked why he wanted to commit an act of mass murder, Whitworth told them that there was “no specific reason,” but went on to state that he was very close to having carried out his plans.

No weapons were found in Whitworth’s home.

Whitworth is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, menacing, criminal mischief and interference with staff, faculty or students of educational institutions. He is being held on a $75,000 bond, and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on May 5.

Police used “she/her” pronouns to refer to Whitworth in their arrest report. Local media either avoided using pronouns when referring to Whitworth, or used “she/her” pronouns.

News of the horrific plot comes just weeks after a mass school shooting in Nashville, Tennessee, which left 6 victims dead. Audrey Hale, a biological female who used “he/him” pronouns, murdered 3 schoolchildren and 3 school staff members at random while on a rampage through The Covenant School.
