“He wanted to kill a lot of people. He wanted to do something that was very similar to that found in the Midland-Odessa area (Aug. 31), and he really wanted to emulate that,” Fort Worth police officer Buddy Calzada, told KXAS-TV.

The police said that they were familiar with the man, and that he had received a call about him because of his mental problems. When the man’s father called, he told the authorities his son was in an effort to buy arms, and the father was afraid that he would be able to try is to do a mass shooting.

Police say the man pulled out a large amount of money from his bank account and tried to buy a gun legally, but was rejected because he did not conduct a background check.

“Kudos to the companies that followed the law,” Officer Landon Rollins with the Crisis Intervention team, told reporters, according to The Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The man then tried to buy a gun off the street, “which we all know is very accessible as you can to get it done,” said Rollins.

The father gave authorities the general that he and his son would be able to be resolved. The crisis team quickly caught up with the man, who Rollins said “he doesn’t live in the real world.”

“He thought I was trying to kill him right then and there, to my mind,” Rollins added. “When he was being held and we interviewed him, he had a very flat affect, and he said, point-blank, I asked him what he wanted to do something with these weapons, he said simply: “I want to kill people.”

Rollins said he did not have his prescribed medication and failure to comply with his doctor. He is currently in a psychiatric clinic in the treatment.

The police and the applause of man, to the father, so to speak.

“He was very worried and he was afraid of a mass casualty incident,” Rollins told KXAS. “It takes so much courage to be able to do that in your own family, and for the enforcement of the law to do so.”
