46-year-old Craig Stephen Hicks of Chapel Hill, NC has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of three Muslim students near the University of North Carolina campus.

The alleged shooter is reported to be an atheist who is, among other things, a fan of the work of Richard Dawkins.

Dawkins has said this about the shootings:

Dawkins cited a number of media reports and went a step further by blaming the killings on a “parking dispute in NRA-land”:

Initial police reports don’t blame the NRA. Dawkins added that one on his own.

If the alleged killer had a religious affiliation would Dawkins be so quick to accept “parking dispute” as a motive?
