A 25-year-old Florida man has been charged with making threats to commit a mass shooting after allegedly sending text messages describing his desire to shoot as many people as he could in a crowd.
Tristan Scott Wix of Daytona Beach was arrested Friday after the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to a series of text messages he sent saying he wanted to open fire on a large crowd of people, officials said.
The article goes on to state the following:
“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,” Wix wrote, according to the sheriff’s office.
Volusia County sheriff’s spokesperson Andrew Gant told BuzzFeed News Wix sent the messages to an ex-girlfriend. She reported the messages to police, Gant said.
