Mom Said Texas A&M Shooter Had Mental Health Problems
On Monday CNN reported that Caffall killed two in a shootout near the university and injured four, before police fatally shot him.
Caffall's mother, Linda Weaver, said his family grew worried and "concerned" after Caffall quit his job in January and vowed to never work again. She also said he had secluded himself from the rest of his family, leading many to believe he might attempt suicide.
Weaver told the Huffington Post the family is "devastated" by the news and added, "If you're going to commit suicide, why take all these other people with you?"
In an interview with local television station KPRC, Caffall's stepfather called the suspect a "ticking time mom" and had worried Caffall might be dangerous to the family.
Police are still investigating the crime scene.
