Motive? What motive?

This just in from faux news;

That didn't take very long now did it? The man who gunned down five people at Northern Illinois University in a suicidal rampage became erratic after halting his medication and carried a shotgun to campus inside a guitar case, police said Friday.

update; Kazmierczak, whose first name was earlier listed as Steven, was taking some kind of medication, Grady said.

"He had stopped taking medication and become somewhat erratic in the last couple of weeks," Grady said, declining to name the drug or provide other details.

next update; A former employee at a Chicago psychiatric treatment center said Kazmierczak was placed there after high school by his parents. She said he used to cut himself, and had resisted taking his medications.
further update; Family members told the authorities that Mr. Kazmierczak had stopped taking his medication. Law enforcement authorities would not say what the medication was for, but said Mr. Kazmierczak had grown erratic, according to his family, in the days after he quit taking the drugs.
Still not giving up those anti-depressant meds though. Media coverage is focused on gun control and copycat shootings inspired by media coverage.

Dressed in black and wearing a stocking cap - whaddaya bet he was loaded up on a bellyful of prescription anti-depressants?

We continue to await the specific toxicology report....,
