An 18-year-old man shook the world when he entered a Texas elementary school and opened fire. 19 children and 2 adults were killed when the gunman unleashed an unspeakable attack. As details on the shooter’s activities come to light, authorities are being met with more questions than answers.

TMZ has reported that the shooter sent several messages to a female minor from Los Angeles just before the shooting occurred. The messages started on May 12 and came completely out of the blue. The girl said she had no idea who the person messaging her was.

The shooter tagged the girl in photos of his guns. Then he began a private chat conversation with her. His messages are shocking in retrospect.

“I got a lil secret I wanna tell u. I’m about to…”

The suspect never did explain what his secret was. The haunting messages are difficult to read with the benefit of hindsight. The girl responded several times, frequently expressing her confusion.

Yesterday, the shooter’s plans played out before a terrified nation. He shot his grandmother and then headed to Robb Elementary School in Uvdale, Texas. There, he barricaded himself in classrooms and shot at will, killing numerous innocent children and a teacher before being shot by law enforcement. There are sure to be more unexplained details as this case is further investigated.
