An alleged gunman in a mass shooting in Arizona on Wednesday night recorded himself during the shooting, according to footage posted to social media.
The shooting took place at the Westgate Entertainment District shopping and dining complex in Glendale, a suburb of Phoenix.
The video surfaced on social media in the minutes after the shooting was first reported about 7:40 local time and included an interaction with a person who appeared to be shot in a parking lot asking for the shooter to stop.
The shooting took place five days after the state reopened its non-essential businesses following their closures because of the coronavirus social distancing guidelines.
The husband of Gabby Giffords, the former Arizona Congresswoman and gun control advocate who survived an assassination attempt, tweeted his thoughts and prayers for all of the victims involved in Wednesday night’s shooting.
