According to the article, the motive for the shooting remains "elusive", but offers this:
According to charging documents, Jabbar told police that he had planned to kill someone for several months.The article also reports that Jabbar was a 2005 graduate of Loyola College, with a degree in biology. And here's something odd:
Now I realize that gas has gotten pretty expensive, but I don't know of too many owners of even two or three gas stations owning homes with value in excess of $1.5 million.
Neighbors said they believe the Jabbar family is originally from Texas and owns at least one gas station in the area. They say the family moved into the neighborhood about a year and a half ago, shortly after their house was built.
The house -- just under 8,000 square feet, according to tax records -- has a circular driveway, wooden double doors, large vertical windows and, in the back, a section that appears to house an indoor pool. The home is valued at $1.6 million.
This is starting to sound oddly similar to the case of the jihadi in North Carolina who attempted vehicular mass murder in the name of Allah.
