There is new information on the College Station gunman that shot and killed two, and wounded several others.
The gunman, 35-year-old Thomas Caffall was said to have mental health issues he'd been fighting for years.
Back in January he suddenly quit his job, and told his family he would never work again.
His mom said she was scared he might attempt suicide, but she never thought he would hurt anyone else.
As new information rolls in, it's still unclear why Caffall, known to his family as "Tres" would commit such a gruesome act.
"Our officers were contacted and they were arriving to the scene, on their initial arrival they started taking gun fire shots to them," said College Station Police Chief Jeff Capps.
The day an officer went to give Caffall eviction papers is the day, his family has been dreading.
"Our officers returned fire striking Caffall," said Capps.
After just half an hour of gun fighting, three people were dead, including Caffall, Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann and an uninvolved bystander 51-year-old Chris Northcliffe.
Leaving several wounded, shocked witnesses said the area is full of college student and is normally pretty quiet.
"First round was like five or six shots, wait for 30 seconds later, another five or six shots. It was just like an automatic gun going off and it was going off for about 30 minutes," said witness Dat Nguyen.
Caffall's mom, Linda Weaver said that not only was her son mentally ill, but he also was very affected by the death of his father when he was 12.
She went on to describe him as an intelligent youth, who wasted opportunities available to him.
"It's so hard to imagine that the really sweet kid you raised turned into a huge monster, and that is what he is now," said Weaver.
As it shows in his Facebook profile picture, he was in the constant companionship of his large Sheltie-mix named Lucy.
But along with photos of his pooch, there were also several photos of different types of guns, including vintage military rifles, and even, assault rifles.
"During the incident Caffall fired multiple rounds, investigators have recovered some long guns and pistols that were used in the assault," said Capps
Court records don't show Caffall having any run-ins with the law except for a traffic violation.
