Suspect in Arizona shooting 'wanted to gain some respect' because he'd been bullied,
The 20-year-old suspect in a shooting at a Glendale, Arizona, entertainment district told investigators he set out to hurt 10 people because he had been bullied in the past, police said Thursday.
Detectives have searched Hernandez's home and vehicle, Stewart said. A black assault rifle was recovered at the scene, he said.
'He felt that he had been bullied'
The investigation indicates Hernandez arrived at Westgate, surveyed the scene, returned to his car, fully loaded three rifle magazines, and retrieved his gun, the sergeant said.
"The suspect did, in this case, admit to detectives that he was planning on going to Westgate to harm 10 victims with this horrendous act," Stawart said. "He wanted to gain some respect, and he felt that he had been bullied in his life."
