SEATTLE (AP) — The man who killed six persons at a house party Saturday had three guns and more than 300 rounds of ammunition, and told guests as he blazed away, “There’s plenty for everyone,” authorities said yesterday.

Aaron Kyle Huff, 28, was “clearly intent on doing homicidal mayhem,” Deputy Police Chief Clark Kimerer said.

Investigators, however, still have no idea why, he said.

“We may be asking these questions over the next year or two,” Chief Kimerer said. “Hopefully, we will find some answers.”

Huff committed suicide when confronted by an officer outside the house early Saturday. Toxicology results will not be available for several days, Chief Kimerer said.

Police said the victims, many of whom were dressed up as zombies in black with white face paint, had met Huff earlier in the night at a rave called “Better Off Undead” and invited him to a party at their rented home.

Huff left the party at about 7 a.m. and returned wearing bandoleers of ammunition and carrying a 12-gauge pistol-grip shotgun and a handgun. He fired on the 30 young partygoers gathered in the house before walking outside.

At a press conference, detectives also displayed an assault rifle, baseball bat and machete seized from Huff’s pickup truck. He had more than 300 rounds of ammunition, Chief Kimerer said. The detectives said they seized additional weapons from the apartment that he shared with his twin brother, but did not describe them.

The attack was “clearly a premeditated and well-planned assault on innocent people,” Chief Kimerer said earlier. “It is very clear that he had thought out a murderous spree, a campaign.”

Police determined that Huff’s twin knew nothing of his brother’s intentions. Huff had delivered pizzas during the five years he lived in Seattle.

They were “twin teddy bears,” Regina Gray, manager of Town & Country Apartments, said Sunday. “He and his twin brother are the kindest, sweetest, gentlest people.”

Two persons wounded in the shooting were in satisfactory condition.
