It's when he went after the hour and we are learning some new details about the Colorado shooting suspect and his chilling plot.
We know his gun range membership raise some red flags and -- police even discovered unusual.
-- items inside his booby trapped department.
So what does all of this say about his possible -- Former homicide -- Rod Wheeler joins us now live from DC thank you for being with us.
Good morning and so one of the most depressing things that you say I know is that it would have been almost impossible to detect this guy in advance.
Right you know these lone -- is very very difficult to detect to these people are because you know there's really no no immediate red flags -- -- -- they don't have a criminal history there's nothing to really attribute to them.
However there may be some things that should raise a red flag and I'll tell you I I -- the -- range owner because.
He did cut about noticed that the voice now on this guys -- link to when he caught that -- home.
I'm the voice bell sounded rather creepy according to the the got -- -- donor and so as a result of that he decided that he wasn't going to allow the static up to his particular gun range.
Right and and that was appropriate -- you on the other hand.
Could it could have gone further I'd probably not I mean what are police gonna do if you call them and say -- got a gut feeling about this guy he seems creepy.
Not really enough to act on.
Well you know what actually we can somewhat act on that and that's an excellent point -- and because any time.
You noticed something a little out of the use you all a very bizarre situation.
Notify the police let us check that person out if nothing else -- and let us have a conversation with bag guy now there's one other red flag that I just heard about yesterday.
You know this guy received a lot of packages to his workplace an unusual amount of packages in boxes in it supposedly this is the -- didn't -- that he was wearing the clothing he was wearing.
And possibly ending this insult even that in itself should have been a red flag where somebody's and at least had a conversation with this guy -- All right so let's go through some of your specific warning signs one of them is making inappropriate references to guns or other weapons somebody -- -- a gun not should raise a red flag you say.
Absolutely you know somebody that always talks about weapons and I'll tell you something else that's a real red flag -- somebody to have the tattoo on their body -- a different types of weapons I suspected this guy.
In this us sitting here he probably had -- tattoo of the Joker on his body.
He probably had to -- to the weapons out of body those are red flags that he also up passed a fascination with past incidents -- perpetrators who have conducted violent acts.
Sure somebody that just seems to always be attracted to these kinds of cases they always talk about these types of cases again another red flag.
Yeah and statements indicating desperation over family financial or other personal problems some of that going on with him that's right back in addition to somebody that's -- using a whole bunch of different types of -- comments making different comments about weapons and then just overall strange behavior bizarre behavior and then a personal somewhat of a -- in games that person and -- discussed in this thing that this -- -- -- somewhat of a -- he was very quiet.
You have to engage that person into a discussion -- is very important that we see what's on these people's minds -- -- well we certainly know that now Rod Wheeler thank you so much.
Sir thank you --
