Additionally, Anderson was said to have written anti-police and anti-Jewish sentiments in the past on his social media. Investigators are attempting to confirm for certain whether or not these sentiments were written by Anderson himself.

The new details came after authorities review of surveilance footage for the area removed all doubt that the Kosher supermarket was a targeted loaction. According to officials, the footage clearly shows the suspects deliberately passing other people on the street, yet they walk past them and aim directly at people in the store.
