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.

    LABOUR LEADER SAYS THERE MAY BE NEED FOR GUN LICENCE REVIEW FOLLOWING PLYMOUTH SHOOTING

    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has said there may need to be a review of gun licensing laws following the Plymouth shootings.

    The Labour leader welcomed the launch of the investigation into how the gunman Jake Davison had his gun licence returned after it was previously removed, but said the case raised wider issues.

    "I think there are wider questions. How on earth did he get a gun licence in the first place? What back-up checks were done?" Sir Keir said in a pooled clip for broadcasters.

    "I am glad there is the investigation already into why the licence was returned.

    "I do think there are wider questions here and that could involve a review of the gun licensing laws because there are other questions here that urgently need to be addressed."

    PICTURED: GUN OBSESSED KILLER JAKE DAVISON

    After randomly firing at terrified passers-by, Jake Davison then turned the gun on himself following the bloodbath on Thursday evening.

    Davison has now been revealed as a right-wing crane operator obsessed with American gun culture.

    His Facebook is littered with American propaganda such as a picture of an eagle in front of a flag and a picture of the Lexington Minuteman statue that depicts a colonial farmer holding a musket.

    PLYMOUTH IN STATE OF SHOCK (CONTINUED…)

    Speaking to BBC Breakfast on Saturday, councillor Kelly said many people had not come forward for support following the traumatic event because they did not want to leave their homes.

    He added: "At the moment people are a little bit reluctant to come outside their doors, they are still in a state of shock.

    "Certainly the centres had a lot of community help workers but very few residents have actually come up and taken advantage of that.

    "The ones that I did speak to really just want to recount what had happened, get things off their chest, and I guess just want a hug and reassurance things will get better."

    Plymouth Sutton and Devonport MP Luke Pollard tweeted images of the vigil and the victims' names, writing: "Tonight our community came together to remember the victims of the shooting in #keyham.

    PLYMOUTH LEFT IN STATE OF SHOCK AFTER MASS SHOOTING, COUNCIL CHIEF SAYS

    The community in Plymouth is in a state of shock and reluctant to leave their homes following a mass shooting which left five people dead, the city council's leader has said.

    Nick Kelly, leader of Plymouth City Council, said people "wanted a hug and assurances things will get better" after gunman Jake Davison killed five people before turning the weapon on himself.

    It came after hundreds of people attended a candle-lit vigil close to where the incident took place on Friday night in an outpouring of grief for the victims.

    Davison, 22, shot dead his mother on Thursday in the Keyham area of the city before going on to kill four more people, including a three-year-old girl, and injure two others.

    Meanwhile, an investigation has been launched into Davison's possession of a shotgun and a firearms licence, which were returned to him after being removed at the end of last year.

    “The past day has been one of the hardest for me personally and hardest for our city that I can remember.

    “We will get through this, and we will do it together.”

    BORIS JOHNSON DEMANDS 'PROPER INVESTIGATION' INTO HOW GUNMAN WAS ABLE TO HOLD GUN LICENCE

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also demanded a “proper investigation” into how the Plymouth shooter was able to legally own a shotgun he used to kill five people. 

    Boris Johnon has said that it should be “properly investigated” as he described the horror shooting as an “absolutely appalling” incident. 

    In a statement the Prime Minister said: “My thoughts are with the friends and family of those who lost their lives and with all those affected by the tragic incident in Plymouth.

    “I thank the emergency services for their response.”

    POLICE PROBE

    The Independent Office for Police Conduct, IOPC, has said it will investigate Devon and Cornwall Police over the matter. 

    Warped Davison had the shotgun and shotgun certificate returned to him last month after being removed in December 2020 following an allegation of assault.

    The firearm believed to have been used by the gunman was legally held by him, Devon and Cornwall Police said. But it is not clear if the shotgun used in the shootings is the one that was returned to him by police in July this year.

    It is understood cops were satisfied he was fit to possess a shotgun again after Davison agreed to attend an anger management course, despite posting angry rants online about firearms.

    Thursday'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.

    FORMER PROSECUTOR SAYS PLYMOUTH GUNMAN 'SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON WATCHLIST'

    Plymouth gunman Jake Davison should have been on a police watchlist before he killed five people and himself in a shooting spree, a former top prosecutor said.

    Nazir Afzal, who was previously chief crown prosecutor for the North West said Davison, 22, was "exactly the type of person the authorities should be keeping an eye on".

    Davison killed his mother on Thursday in the Keyham area of Plymouth before going on to shoot dead four more people, including a three-year-old girl, and injure two others.

    An investigation has since been launched by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) into Davison's possession of a shotgun and a firearms licence, which were returned to him in July after being removed last December following an allegation of assault against him in September 2020.

    When asked on BBC Breakfast on Saturday if Davison should have been on a watchlist, Mr Afzal said: "Yes, absolutely, particularly given that he had a firearms licence and given that we now learn in December it was taken off him temporarily because of allegations he was facing and returned to him. He was exactly the kind of person that you would be keeping an eye on or the authorities should be keeping an eye on."

    'LOST FOR WORDS'

    Davison unleashed the rampage at around 6.11pm when he stormed a home on Biddick Drive.

    Gunshots erupted as he shot mum Maxine, who suffered from cancer, before he skulked down the street holding a pump action shotgun.

    He then shot dead Sophie and Lee before leaving a man and woman with significant injuries.

    One of the injured victims has been named locally as Ben Parsonage, 33, who was shot along with his mother Michele, 53.

    Ben’s brother Jordan posted on Facebook: "Just a little update on my mum and brother. Ben is now home and going to make a full recovery. My mum has to have an operation on her arm and is expected to make a full recovery."

    THERE ARE 13 MORE SCENES OF INVESTIGATION, CONFIRMS POLICE CHIEF

    Mr Sawyer said a firearm – described by witnesses as a pump action shotgun – was recovered from the scene.

    He added: “Multiple shots have been fired from a firearm during that six-minute-or-so period.

    “There are some 13 scenes and potentially more scenes.

    “There are therefore five people of Plymouth who have lost their lives overnight – and Mr Davison himself – including a particularly young child.”

    Mr Sawyer said the victims’ identities would be made public at a later time.

      PLYMOUTH SHOOTER JAKE DAVISON HAD HIS SHOTGUN TAKEN AWAY BY COPS – THEN RETURNED JUST WEEKS BEFORE MASSACRE

      TWISTED gunman Jake Davison had his shotgun certificate and gun returned to him just weeks before the shooting spree it emerged tonight.

      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."

      DAVISON TALKED ABOUT WANTING TO REGAIN ‘DRIVE AND DETERMINATION’ HE ONCE HAD

      Davison said he was “still in the same house, same situation, same position” and talked about wanting to regain the “drive and motivation” he once had.

      Although saying he did not “clarify” himself as an “incel” – the abbreviation used online for “involuntarily celibate”, for those unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one – he talked about “people similar to me have had nothing but themselves”.

      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.”

      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.”
