Chris Combs, FBI Special Agent in Charge: “He called the national tip line about 15 minutes before his encounter with the troopers. It was, frankly, rambling statements about some of the atrocities that he felt that he had gone through.” pic.twitter.com/aG8kSgHtAp— The Hill (@thehill) September 2, 2019
Odessa Police Dept Chief Michael Gerke: "Saturday morning, our suspect went to work at Journey Oil Field service. He was there for a short time and was terminated by his employer. Right after that firing, he called 911, Odessa Police Department's 911, and so did his employer." pic.twitter.com/za8uWdOhwL— The Hill (@thehill) September 2, 2019
Way to go, guys.
The FBI can’t stop mass shootings from happening even when the shooter personally calls them before going on a rampage. They can, however, arrest fed posters and invoke red flag laws to disarm and lock up MAGApedes for trash talking with Antifa.
“ODESSA, Texas — We’re learning more on the shooter, Seth Ator, who shot and killed seven while injuring 22 in Odessa, Texas, Saturday.
According to officials at a press conference Saturday, Ator had gotten into an argument with his employer and ended up being fired before the shootings.
“Saturday morning our suspect went to work at Journey Oilfield Services,” Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke said Monday. “He was there for a short time and was terminated by his employer.”
OPD says after he was fired, both Ator and his now-former employer called police, to complain about a disagreement over the firing.
“He then leaves his employers before our officers get there,” Gerke said. “A short time before he makes contact with the DPS Trooper, he actually calls the FBI National Tip Line but makes no threat of any actual violence.” …”
Seth Ator was a local who lived in Odessa and went on a rampage when he was fired from his trucking job. His former boss also called the police on him.
