(CNN) – The 17-year-old suspect in Friday's mass shooting at a Texas high school is currently being held without bond on capital murder charges.

But questions remain on who he is and why he chose to open fire on Santa Fe High School, killing at least 10 people and wounding 10 others.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis had scant details of his life on Facebook before the page disappeared.

But CNN was able to confirm the page before Facebook removed him from its platform.

On it, Pagourtzis said he started attending Santa Fe High School three years ago. He posted pictures of himself, showing what appears to be an unremarkable high school student.

But on April 30, less than a month ago, he also posted a black T-shirt that says "Born To Kill.”

Indications are the shooter may have been wearing this T-shirt when he went to school Friday morning.

Another post included a black duster jacket with Nazi, communist, fascist and religious symbols.

And under the name "Comma Kazi", Pagourtzis posted three rap songs on YouTube.

The rest of his profile was unexceptional: a photo of him and a church group, a post showing interest in joining the Marines.

He was mentioned as a standout player on the school's JV football team a few years ago, but little else to suggest notable involvement in the school community.

Law enforcement told CNN that at this point they have no reason to believe he was on anybody's radar.

And so far there is no explicit motive for why he did this.
