I suspect this young man has a severe mental illness.

This is not an issue of treating mental state! "Mental illness" or not -- such an individual needed to be stopped immediately!

Too bad somebody there was not equipped to stop him.

The average number of people killed in mass shootings when stopped by police is 14.3
The average number of people killed in a mass shooting when stopped by a civilian is 2.3.

This preparation is not to be left up to the police, in view of today's social climate! No gun-free zones!

Agreed. But institutionalizing for severe, untreated, mental illness would reduce the incidents. IMHO.
