Plymouth shooting latest – 'Incel' Jake Davison's five victims named including girl, 3, in Keyham gun rampage

A CRAZED gunman who slaughtered five people including a child in a bloody rampage has been revealed as a "virgin incel loner".

Jake Davison, 22, moans about how he is "getting uglier" each year and said he was "defeated by life" in chilling YouTube videos.

The crane operator shot himself dead yesterday after gunning down a woman, believed to be his mum, in Plymouth.

Davison also killed a three-year-old girl, a second woman and a male bystander during the horror.

His YouTube page has revealed the mass-murderer as a rambling gun nut who follows the "Incel" movement.

He likes Incel TV – an online support group for "involuntary celibates" that is linked to male supremacy and misogyny.

Incels believe they have no possibility of finding a partner to get love, validation or acceptance from.

    DAVISON ONLINE ACTIVITY

    Davison also has a dark YouTube page where he rambles about his failed love life and follows countless pro-gun accounts.

    Just two days ago, he added a clip to his ‘liked’ videos of a M1 Garand semi-automatic rifle being shot.

    Davison also likes Incel TV – an online support group for “involuntary celibates” that is linked to male supremacy and misogyny.

    The movement has been labelled a “hate” group with many followers accused of believing they are owed sex by women.

    It was linked to the killing of ten people in Canada in 2018 after Alek Minassian posted a Facebook message showing his support for Incels before ploughing a van into crowds.

    GUNMAN WAS A FOLLOWER OF THE ‘INCEL’ MOVEMENT

    Jake Davison’s YouTube page has revealed the mass-murderer as a rambling gun nut who follows the “Incel” movement.

    He likes Incel TV – an online support group for “involuntary celibates” that is linked to male supremacy and misogyny.

    Incels believe they have no possibility of finding a partner to get love, validation or acceptance from. The movement has been labelled a “hate” group with many followers accused of believing they are owed sex by women.

    In turn, this makes some Incels want to strike out at the world because they have been rejected by girls, while others blame attractive men for their perceived problems.

    The community gained worldwide attention when British-born student Elliot Rodger, 22, murdered six people at the University of California in 2014.

    DAVISON TALKED ABOUT WANTING TO REGAIN ‘DRIVE AND DETERMINATION’ HE ONCE HAD

    Davison said he was “still in the same house, same situation, same position” and talked about wanting to regain the “drive and motivation” he once had.

    Although saying he did not “clarify” himself as an “incel” – the abbreviation used online for “involuntarily celibate”, for those unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one – he talked about “people similar to me have had nothing but themselves”.

    Before signing off, he said: “I know it’s a movie but I like to think sometimes I’m the Terminator or something. Despite reaching almost total system failure he keeps trying to accomplish his mission.”

    FIRST ACTIVE SHOOTER IN 11 YEARS

    The Plymouth rampage was the first time an active shooter has been on the loose in the UK since Derrick Bird’s killing spree in west Cumbria on June 2, 2010.

    Twelve people died including the gunman, his twin brother David and the family’s solicitor.

    After first murdering his brother and a colleague, the 52-year-old taxi driver drove through rural west Cumbria and fired at random people on country roads and in villages before finally killing himself.

    Bird was said to have argued with colleagues on the taxi rank the night before and told one: “You won’t see me again.”

    Eleven victims survived the shooting but some ended up with life-changing injuries.

    The horror left a lasting mark on the victims’ families and friends as well as those who witnessed the rampage.

      INSIDE SINISTER INCEL DEATH CULT WHERE JAKE DAVISON SHARED HIS WARPED VIEWS

      Security sources last night said Incel, an “involuntary celibate” movement which influenced Davison, was a growing threat in Britain.

      The movement, with male supremacy beliefs, has been ­associated with at least six mass shootings and the murder of 46 people in the United States.

      And while the Plymouth atrocity is not being treated as terror- related, Scotland Yard’s counter terrorism command and MI5 have flagged up the threat from Incels here in the UK.

      There had already been two cases of followers who were thwarted by police in Britain.

      Followers target women and attractive men — termed “Stacys” and “Chads” — as the source of their inability to find partners.

      The movement even includes merchandise with the logo Incel Inside in a mock-up of the Intel computer chip stickers.

      THERE ARE 13 MORE SCENES OF INVESTIGATION, CONFIRMS POLICE CHIEF

      Mr Sawyer said a firearm – described by witnesses as a pump action shotgun – was recovered from the scene.

      He added: “Multiple shots have been fired from a firearm during that six-minute-or-so period.

      “There are some 13 scenes and potentially more scenes.

      “There are therefore five people of Plymouth who have lost their lives overnight – and Mr Davison himself – including a particularly young child.”

      Mr Sawyer said the victims’ identities would be made public at a later time.

      "WE CAN RULE OUT TERRORISM", SAYS DEFENCE SECRETARY

      Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said today: "It's a tragedy what's happened there. We can rule out terrorism from that event.

      "It goes to underline the importance of issues such as gun control but also what's happening in people's homes up and down the country.

      "It's really important our police are properly equipped and supported to deal with it."

      WHAT WAS THE MOTIVE?

      Devon and Cornwall Police Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer said there is no known motive at present, adding: "This is an extraordinarily unusual response by a fellow human being.

      "Whether there were mental health issues I cannot say at this time."

      Davison has now been revealed as a right-wing crane operator obsessed with American gun culture.

      WHAT WEAPON WAS USED?

      The officer said the weapon used in the shooting, which has been recovered, was described as a “pump action shotgun”.

      The weapons are legal in the UK as long as they have a fixed magazine capacity of no more than three cartridges and a valid Shotgun certificate.

      He also confirmed Davison, whose social media accounts paint the picture of a gun-obsessed loner, had a firearms licence dating back to 2020.

      HOW IT UNFOLDED

      Twisted Jake Davison shot his own mum dead before randomly firing at terrified victims with a pump-action shotgun in a grim rampage.

      He stormed Maxine Davison's home armed with the weapon and fired at the 51-year-old after ranting about her online.

      The 22-year-old then left his mother to die as he rampaged through Biddick Drive picking off locals at random during the six-minute horror.

      Police confirmed today he shot and killed three-year-old girl Sophie and her dad Lee Martyn, 43, who was with her.

      The gunman then left a man, 33, and woman, 53, with significant injuries after firing the powerful weapon at them.

      Davison entered a park where he shot Stephen Washington, 59, who died at the scene, and made his way to Henderson Place.

      BORIS DEMANDS "PROPER INVESTIGATION"

      Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also demanded a “proper investigation” into how the Plymouth shooter was able to legally own a shotgun he used to kill five people. 

      Boris Johnon has said that it should be “properly investigated” as he described the horror shooting as an “absolutely appalling” incident. 

      In a statement the Prime Minister said: “My thoughts are with the friends and family of those who lost their lives and with all those affected by the tragic incident in Plymouth.

      "I thank the emergency services for their response."

      POLICE CHIEF PROUD OF HIS OFFICERS AND RESPONSE TIME

      Shaun Sawyer said he was proud of the way his officers responded to the incident.

      “Six minutes I think is a very good response time,” he said.

      “But obviously if we could have done things better we will look at that.”
