SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the biography on a Instagram account believed to belong to the gunman who killed two students at his California high school said, “Saugus, have fun at school tomorrow.”

Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say the message was posted Thursday morning but it’s unclear when. They say it was later removed, and they don’t know who made the change.

Authorities say off-duty officers whose children went to Saugus High School in Santa Clarita were the first on scene and provided first aid to the victims.

A 16-year-old student shot five classmates and then himself. It’s unclear if they had any relationship, and a motive is unknown. The shooter is in grave condition.

The FBI says there’s no reason to believe he was acting on behalf of a group or ideology or that there were any conspirators.
