The Oregon college shooter was born in Britain and came to the United States as a young boy.

CBS Los Angeles reported Mercer had ties to the Los Angeles-area communities of Torrance and Tarzana.

Mercer’s stepsister told the station he was born in England and traveled to the United States as a young boy. She said Mercer’s father, who lives in Tarzana, married her mom and that the last time she spoke with Mercer was a year ago.

In Torrance, neighbors told CBS Los Angeles that Mercer lived there a few years ago and kept mostly to himself…

An online dating profile that appears to belong to Mercer lists his hobbies and interests as “Internet, killing zombies, movies, music, reading.” Under ethnicity, it says “mixed race” and his relationship status says “single — never married.”

The profile also says he is currently in college and lives with his parents, is a Republican and not religious. It also says he doesn’t smoke, drink or do drugs.
