Allen Ivanov is a name popping up all over the web. The 19 year-old game developer from Seattle is accused of murdering three people, one of which is an ex girlfriend. From the outside looking in, it would appear that Allen had it all. He was attending the University of Washington studying computer science and engineering. He had founded his own company and launched a successful kickstarter. He even had a car he bragged about on instagram, a brand new 2016 Subaru WRX. But none of that was enough.
On Saturday evening Ivanov walked into a house party and opened fire killing Jordan Ebner, Anna Bui and Jake Long. His reasoning for the shootings was a break up with Anna that had happened months ago. Since the shooting, his social media has been picked apart looking for insight into his mindstate. In looking through his account there was nothing more ominous than a post he made 5 days ago. It was a picture of a rifle with three bullets and the comment: ‘You can’t run with me ☹️’
Allen was arrested over 100 miles away from the scene of the crime. He now awaits arraignment in Snohomish County Jail. Ivanov left cryptic tweets on his Twitter account just two days before the shooting. They read; ‘First and last tweet,’ he wrote on July 28. ‘I’ve been through it all.’
This was quite possibly a statement regarding the gun company Ruger.
The pompous and narcissistic murderer just couldn’t handle rejection. The laser tag company he helped to create had this to say about the situation on their Facebook page:
RIP to the innocent victims:
