The gunman is Tuesday’s shootings was known to neighbors as a problem, and would often harass them. Furthermore, the gunman was said to have been shooting a lot lately, which raises some questions…
Brian Flint said he got a call in the morning that his roommate was injured and that his truck had been stolen. It turned out his neighbor was the gunman, Flint said.
“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” Flint said. “We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”
Living near the gunman was “hell,” Flint said, and the man was a known felon who often harassed him and his neighbors.
If a known felon is out shooting guns, that’s a red flag to anyone with half a brain, because it is illegal for a convicted felon to own firearms.
According to KHSLTV and neighbors, the gunman was out on bond for stabbing a female neighbor. Neighbors also say that they alerted law enforcement for weeks about the gunman’s behavior and his apparent shooting guns late at night.

The “known felon” comment could have come from the charges that the gunman was out on bond for, which wouldn’t make him a felon yet, because he was not convicted of any crimes. Whether his past shows any felony convictions is still unknown.
Witnesses said one man died in his driveway as a result of the first round of bullets. Neighbors there say they had been complaining for weeks about the gunman, who lived on the street, firing his gun late at night and early in the morning.
