An attorney for the family of the man charged in the El Paso Walmart mass shooting says the man's mother called law enforcement weeks before the rampage. His mother was concern that her son had an ‘AK' style rifle.
Attorney Chris Ayres told CNN that the call was made to police in Allen, Texas, by the mother of Patrick Crusius. However, she did not identify herself or her son during the phone call. Police also didn’t ask her for any other information.
During the call, she spoke with a public safety officer who told her that her son, 21, was legally allowed to purchase the gun.
Sgt. Jon Felty, an Allen police spokesman, said he wasn’t aware of the call and there was no record of it.
