Authorities released more details about a gunman who killed seven people during a shooting rampage in Midland and Odessa that started only minutes after he called the FBI tip line.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs said the shooter, Seth Aaron Ator, rambled on about his “perceived life’s tragedies” in the tipline call. Ator didn’t make any threats during the call either. Combs also said that the FBI’s investigation shows the 36-year-old “was on a long spiral going down” and that his home “is a very strange residence.”
The Monday afternoon news conference also shared details about an additional victim in the Labor Day weekend mass shooting.
