Tres Genco Wiki – Tres Genco Biography
Tres Genco is a native of Hillsboro who has been arrested and charged with an attempted hate crime after allegedly plotting a mass shooting of women at a university in Ohio and having a machine gun.
They said he was released after serving time for a conviction in Highland County, and now, he is charged federally.
He is 21 years old.
Plot of Shooting
According to federal prosecutors, Genco intended to carry out the mass shooting on the same date Elliot Rodger killed six people, including two women, at a sorority house near the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 2014.
Genco allegedly frequented a popular “incel” website from July 2019 through mid-March 2020, when he was first arrested.
A portmanteau of “involuntary celibate,” “incel” is a controversial ideology popularized on social media platforms such as Reddit and 4chan. The men that frequent these boards express contempt toward virile men, begrudgingly called “Chads,” and “Stacys,” the women interested in them.
Genco allegedly bragged about spraying some “foids [women] and couples” with orange juice using a water gun in one post. Prosecutors said he compared his “extremely empowering action” actions to that of Rodger.
Genco is charged with attempting to commit a hate crime and illegally possessing a machine gun.
Federal officials said the machine gun charge could mean up to 10 years in prison, while the hate crime charge could mean life in prison.
Genco is now listed as booked in the Butler County Jail.
Highland County police who searched Genco’s vehicle residence in March 2020 reportedly discovered a Glock-style 9mm semiautomatic pistol, a firearm including a bump stock, body armor, several loaded magazines, and boxes of ammunition.
Authorities claimed the Glock, which lacked manufacturer marks or a serial number, was found in a heating vent in the suspect’s bedroom.
Genco, who was rearrested on Wednesday, is charged with attempting to commit a hate crime and one count of illegally possessing a machinegun.
