Just hours before the deadly Texas Elementary School Shooting that took the lives of 19 students and 2 teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, the deranged shooter, Salvador Ramos, may have revealed his plan to gun down school children in a verbal rant after losing a violent video game.
Ramos may have made threats during the game that he would “shoot up a school” using an AR-15 which disturbed one fellow gamer so much that she recorded the comment and reported it to the FBI as well as the creators of the game Behavior Interactive, The US Sun reported Wednesday.
A gamer has revealed how a male player was making threats to “shoot up a school” using an “AR-15” after he became mad at losing a video game called Dead By Daylight, just hours before Ramos killed 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas.
If the threats were in fact made by Salvador Ramos, it wouldn’t be the first time threats were made while playing video games. Another source told The Sun, that Ramos threatened to shoot up schools when playing Call of Duty.
The worried Dead by Daylight gamer, who was not identified by The Sun, wrote on Reddit “So I have no idea if they were joking or what but they were super angry about losing and started saying they were going to shoot up a school and they mentioned they had some type of gun and kept saying it was going to be all of our fault.”
She added that she recorded the entire post-chat and everyone kind of brushed it off, “but I just am in disbelief because I’ve never seen someone say that before.”
Writing on Reddit, the concerned gamer wrote: “So I have no idea if they were joking or what but they were super angry about losing and started saying they were going to shoot up a school and they mentioned they had some type of gun and kept saying it was going to be all of our fault.”
When she was asked if the gamer behind the threats might’ve been Ramos, she replied, “The gun he mentioned was an AR15 with I think an extended clip or something but I don’t know. I feel horrible for those children and families.”
The gamer has since gone back and watched the replay that she recorded of what the gamer, who is believed to be Ramos, said and wrote on Reddit, “However I’m a little stressed because when I went back to watch exactly what they said the person said ‘What if I shoot up a school tomorrow :)”
