CHRISTIANSBURG, VA -

1:39 p.m.

Christiansburg police have seized an iPhone and a Toshiba laptop in connection with Friday's shooting at the NRV mall.

Court documents also grant them access to the 4chan.org social media account of suspected shooter Neil MacInnis.

Search warrants say the 18-year-old admitted to police that he posted about the shooting on his laptop first, but could not get a wireless signal.

He then, according to warrants, posted to the account using his iPhone.
