A Florida based man Tristan Scott Wix has been charged with threatening a mass. Authorities came to know about his plans after his ex-girlfriend informed police with the text messages he had sent her.
Police told that he sent several messages about the mass shootings, in one message he wrote – “a good 100 kills would be nice” and claiming he already had a location planned.
In another message, he wrote – “A school is a weak target.. id be more likely to open fire on a large crowd of people from over 3 miles away. I’d wanna break a world record for longest confirmed kill ever.”
Luckily Wix was arrested by the police at a grocery store parking lot.
According to the sheriff’s office in the interrogation Wix told he was very much fascinated by mass shootings but did not have any weapons.
But in the investigation police has found 22-caliber hunting rifle and 400 rounds of ammunition in Wix’s apartment.
Wix’s ex-girlfriend is being titled as a superhero who alerted the cops timely.
Police told in a statement – When you look at this kid’s background, he is the profile of a shooter,”. “He lost his job, he lost his girlfriend, he’s depressed, he’s got the ammunition and he wants to become known for being the most prolific killer in American history.”
Wix was arrested hours after a man with the same plan to carry a mass shooting was arrested.
