According to the New York Times, federal law enforcement officials said they were investigating a thread posted yesterday on /r9k/, a board on 4chan, in which a user warned, “Don’t go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest.”

An archived version of the thread is visible here.

The board is currently roiling with speculation about the user’s identity—and the shooter’s as well. At one point on Thursday, Liberty News (?) reports, the board identified the shooter as one Toby Reynolds, a.k.a. “Egg Man.”

On Twitter, however, NBC News reporter Tom Winter said that Reynolds had spoken to NBC. The shooter in Oregon was shot by police after killing 13 and injuring at least 7 more at Umpqua Community College.
