Texas shooter shared massacre plan in Call of Duty rant hours before shooting

The terrifying Texas mass shooter Salvador Ramos could have hinted at his sick plan to gun down school children in an aggressive rant after losing a violent online video game, a report has claimed.

A male player has been reported saying that he would "shoot up a school" using an AR-15 reportedly disturbed one fellow gamer so much that she went to the FBI, The US Sun reported.

Threats reportedly started after the player lost the popular video game Dead by Daylight just hours before the abhorrent massacre at Robb Elementary School Tuesday, The Sun reported.

Another source told The Sun that Ramos threatened to shoot up schools while playing Call of Duty.

The worried player, who was not identified by the Sun, posted 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 said that she had recorded the entire chat and said everyone kind of ignored it "but I just am in disbelief because I’ve never seen someone say that before.”

“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 :)” she said on Reddit, the Sun reported.

When questioned if she felt the person making the threats was Ramos, she said: “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.”

Ramos shot and killed 21 people in the school massacre, including 19 young students on Tuesday.

It is one of America's most horrific shootings.

“It’s most likely a horrible coincidence but still, I just don’t understand why someone would even say that,” the gamer wrote.
