Plymouth mass shooting victims identified as gunman’s mother, three-year-old girl - 7NEWS.com.au

Five victims of the shooting that has rocked England have been identified.

The mother of the gunman and a three-year-old girl were among those killed in the shooting in Plymouth on Thursday evening.

Jake Davison, 22, killed five people, including his mother Maxine, before taking his own life.

He had earlier posted on social media about being “beaten down and defeated by life” and was a self-described “incel virgin”.

The attack lasted six minutes, during which time he killed his mother, three-year-old Sophie, her father Lee Martyn, 43, Stephen Washington, 59, and Kate Shepherd, 66.

All of the victims lived in the Keyham area of Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall Police said.

Shaun Sawyer, chief constable for Devon and Cornwall police, told reporters that investigators are not sure what Davison’s motive was.

“Let’s see what’s on his hard drive, let’s see what’s on his computer, let’s see what’s on social media,” Sawyer said.

“We believe we have an incident that is domestically related that has spilled into the street and seen several people of Plymouth lose their lives in an extraordinarily tragic circumstance,” he added.

Davison appeared to post on YouTube under the name Professor Waffle in an account that has now been taken down, replaced by a notice saying it violated the site’s community guidelines.

In an 11-minute clip posted before the killings, “Professor Waffle” talks about how he was “beaten down and defeated by...life.”

Britain’s last mass shooting was in 2010, when a taxi driver killed 12 people in Cumbria in northwest England before taking his own life.

A candlelit vigil was held following the shootings.

People laid flowers and held candles in North Down Crescent Park in Keyham, near the scene, to remember those killed.
