Mall Shooting Appears Random and Unprovoked

The Omaha Police released this statement yesterday evening on the mall shooting which killed nine people including the shooter and injured five others. The shootings took place inside the Von Maur department store at Westroads Mall in Omaha.

Police Chief Thomas Warren called the shootings premeditated but did say that they appeared to be randomly selected and unprovoked.

Rather than his mother, it was Hawkins’ landlord, Debora Kovac that found the suicide note at 1pm, just a few minutes prior to the shootings.

He basically said how sorry he was for everything. He didn’t want to be a burden to people and that he was a piece of shit all of his life and that now he’d be famous.

The shootings began at 1:42pm and police responded within six minutes.
