This was the man who shot California store owner Laura Ann Carleton after she confronted him.
Ikeguchi, 27, made “several disparaging remarks about a rainbow flag” before fatally shooting Laura Ann Carleton, 66, outside Mag.Pi clothing store in Cedar Glen in Lake Arrowhead, California, on Friday, according to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office.
Police responded to the incident at around 5 p.m., where Carleton was pronounced dead at the scene. Ikeguchi, who fled the scene on foot, was later located and killed during “a lethal force encounter” with deputies.
Ikeguchi also made major Anti-LGBT posts on social media including one showing burning pride flag.
The extreme rhetoric from politicians and public figures is now having major consequences.
