Another reason why every day is Gun Appreciation Day

The 15-year-old boy who is accused of shooting and killing his parents, a 5-year-old brother and two of his sisters, aged 2 and 9, planned to continue shooting. After shooting his mother while she was sleeping at around 1 a.m. Saturday, Nehemiah Griego then shot and killed his siblings. He proceeded to wait for around five hours until his father got home before shooting him as well. Griego was going to continue the carnage. He loaded up several weapons, including an AR-15 semiautomatic, into the family van to drive to the nearest Walmart and kill more people before dying in a shootout with police, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

But, according to the paper, the teenager ended up calling a friend who convinced him to meet him at a church where his father had been a pastor. It’s unclear what happened throughout the next 12 hours but eventually it seems the teenager told a church security guard someone had killed his family. The guard was the one who called 911 at around 9 p.m. Local CBS affiliate KRQE hears that Griego told investigators “he had been having homicidal and suicidal thoughts along with anger problems and had been upset with his mother.”
