WADR, I do not understand this question. Seems to me that the fact that he wanted to kill is more important. What am I missing here?

He could have chosen not to kill himself, just like James Holmes or the Norway mass killer.

Fortunately he chose to end his life.

From what I’ve read, apparently he was wearing real, bona-fide body armor. Well, a real bulletproof vest at least.

So did he intend to off himself? Was he perhaps anticipating that someone was maybe going to take a shot at him? Or was it all part of the whole “Look at me I’m such a badass” ensemble?

I’ve often speculated that the reason a lot of spree killers commit suicide after their spree is finished is that adrenalin winds down, and if you’ve ever been in situation where you’re adrenalin is way up, and then it crashes, you end up actually feeling seriously bummed out once the adrenalin rush goes away.
