Jesus Take The Wheel: Omaha Kid Who Shot Up His School Left A Warning On Facebook

Robert Butler Jr School Shooting Omaha Nebraska

And we thought it could never be “one of us.”

The Omaha student who went on a shooting rampage at his high school Wednesday posted a chilling message on Facebook warning of the attack and blaming the school for driving him to violence.

Robert Butler Jr., 17, burst into an office at Millard South High School in Omaha during school hours and fired four to five shots, striking the assistant principal and the principal before fleeing in his car and eventually committing suicide about a mile from the school, Omaha police said.

Assistant Principal Vicki Kaspar, 58, died at a hospital hours later. The principal, Curtis Case, 45, was reported in serious but stable condition.

No students were injured in the shooting.

Butler’s friends and family were left dumbfounded by the attack and struggled to explain what drove the boy, described as fun-loving and energetic, to his gruesome end.

“It’s just unreal,” Robert Uribe, Butler’s stepgrandfather, told The Associated Press. “I don’t know what would possess him to do that.”

But a rambling message Butler posted to Facebook just hours before the shooting has left some clues.

In the expletive-laced rant, Butler, who had been at the school for only two months after moving from Lincoln, Neb., wrote that the new city and the new school had changed him.

According to several media reports, the post read:

“Everybody that used to know me I’m [sorry] but Omaha changed me and [expletive] me up. and the school I attend is even worse ur gonna here about the evil [expletive] I did but that [expletive] school drove me to this. I wont u guys to remember me for who I was b4 this ik. I greatly affected the lives of the families ruined but I’m sorry.”

Butler signed off the post with an ominous “goodbye.”

Local police did not say what kind of gun Butler used or how he obtained it.

Butler’s father is a detective for the Omaha Police Department, and investigators were interviewing him to learn more about what may have led to the shooting.

Students and friends described Butler as a fun-loving prankster who was occasionally scolded by teachers for cutting up in class, but didn’t seem angry.

“He didn’t seem like a kid who would go out and do this,” Butler’s buddy Jacob Rinke told The AP. “When I first heard about this in school, I didn’t believe it. I was pretty much in denial about it.”

SMH. We have got to do better a better job of teaching these kids how to deal.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR !
    My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-
    My sister explained to her why people have different skin tones and she then went around the table pointing out everyones skin tone.

    What the hell do you mean of teaching “these kids” how to deal? Who are “these kids” ; please explain. And being depressed isn’t easy to cure!

    @BB – Never say Black folks don’t do this and that. It was pretty surprising to find out that the DC snipers were black and another black man was found on a plane WITH a bomb. I’m just saying.

      black communities are so different all over the country . and sorry folks but in Nebraska and WA state.. Yall are some kinna special. when i heard the DC snipers were black……. and lived Tacoma WA.. all I could say is OF COURSE.
      black are so marginalized is those areas…. especially new folks moving there… they lose their damn minds while trying to seek a “black community” and its so lacking… as for that AFRICAN .. not black american ….. I understand completely when we say “black folks dont do this”
      each circumstance is different and each circumstance were ppl who became or felt isolated. can u imagine isolation in freakn NEBRASKA ..

      anyways… my prayers to all families and that community

  • Candid Canuck

    the education system is a trip.. no one will admit this… but no matter how you raise your kids, -especially boys- they are still at risk for psychological issues with self confidence, low self esteem. and boys will take it out with anger and violence..

    REal talk.

  • Q-Dash

    I knew that kid…R.I.P man..hope the father took you in bro.

  • jamn

    He’s not black. He’s mixed

  • DE-Ree

    I blame it on all the mind altering processed food filled with neurotoxins it is messing with our natural chemistry making people crazy. The food is not real
    It’s plastic even bugs won’t eat it.

  • OooLaLaLa

    Smh at his parents being shocked. Parents pay attention to your children. When kids go crazy it seems like parents don’t ever know what went on with their children. The boy posted on FB what he planned to do, why wasn’t anything done?

    • rosa marie

      Good comment…His daddy is a policeman. I think either daddy has a gun collection that he doesn’t secure or he didn’t lock up his police issued weapon. Its always interesting to hear where these kids get the weapon from. All I know is his dad should be whipped for being so careless with his weapons, especially if he did like the white folks and gave his son a gun as a gift.

      @OooLaLaLa

      I am not blaming the parents of this young man, but I do agree with you. I am not a parent myself, but feel that people really need to talk to and bond with their children more. It is not always easy, yeah sometimes kids do not want to talk, but surely if they KNOW that you are there for them, things like this would happen less frequently . . . I think!

  • rosa marie

    I think the parents should be charged if this boy used one of the weapons they kept in the house

  • TIT_4_TAT

    I swear sum ppl really make me sick it does not matter if he is black or mixed he is a (n the latta) child someones child son. That’s all that matter. Two ppl are dead. Because some one was not paying attention. There are always sign just open your eyes parents.

    • London Girl

      Right to all of your points!

  • smh

    It does matter what race he is, because INNOCENT people are PROFILED by their race because of the crimes of others. Blacks are already profiled as being drug dealers, gangsters and murders in the hood. We dont need another notch under the belt especially if its unwarranted.
