*Conservative Fox News Channel host John Gibson is making headlines for his comments about the recent school shooting at predominately black Success Tech high school in Cleveland.Related Videos:
During his nationally-syndicated radio show on Wednesday (Oct. 10), Gibson said he knew the shooter, student Asa Coon, was white because after the rampage, "he killed himself."
Authorities say Coon had guns in both hands as he fired shots on the school's third floor, wounding two teachers and two other students before killing himself.
"Black shooters don't do that; they shoot and move on," Gibson said on his show.
Defending his comments the following day, Gibson said Coon's suicide did not fit the mold of a "classic hip-hop shooting," once he read the student was a fan of rocker Marilyn Manson.
"He killed himself. Hip-hoppers do not kill themselves. They walk away," Gibson explained. "Now, I didn't need to hear the kid was white with blond hair. Once he'd shot himself in the head, no hip-hopper."
Gibson went on to insinuate that hip hop may have influenced Coon to launch his assault.
"I mean, where do they think these kids are getting these messages of, you know, loading an extra shot in their mac?," Gibson said before playing a portion of 50 Cent's song "Fully Loaded Clip."
"I got a fully loaded clip. Why would you think African-American kids would be so enamored with messing around with guns? ...I mean, it's only in every third hip-hop song," Gibson said.
Gibson further explained: "I'm being accused of being a racist for making this observation about an issue we've been talking about here for over a year, and that is the black-on-black boundaries of the African-American community. They don't shoot somebody and then say, ‘Oh, I'm so unhappy. This is such a scar on my soul, I've got to shoot myself in the head.' Am I right about that or wrong about that?..Gangster shooters don't do that. They're happy they got off the first shot. They're happy they killed the guy they were aiming at. They get in their car, and they move on down the road, probably looking over their shoulders a little bit."
