The man who was taken down by two good guys with a gun, after he shot three people yesterday at restaurant in Oklahoma City, reportedly worked as an armed security guard.
From the sound of it he may have planned on walking away, as he was wearing ear and eye protection when he began shooting:
DAILY MAIL – Police in Oklahoma on Friday identified the gunman who opened fire inside a busy restaurant and wounded a woman and two girls as 28-year-old Alexander Tilghman.
Tilghman, who worked as an armed security guard, was shot and killed outside Louie’s On The Lake on Thursday evening by two armed passersby identified by police as Juan Carlos Nazario, 35, and Bryan Wittle, 39.
Police said earlier Tilghman was wearing eye glasses and ear protection and armed with a pistol and proceeded to shoot Natalie Wills, 39, her 12-year-old daughter Niah Giles and a 14-year-old family friend named Alex.
This security guard also sounds like he had some serious mental issues:
OKCFOX – “I am under hardcore demonic attack you know; I really need some real people in my life so get in touch with me ASAP” Alex Tilghman said into the camera for his YouTube page. The post happened weeks before police say he went into Louie’s Bar and Grill on Lake Hefner and opened fire.
Tilghman, 28, lived in Oklahoma City and his social media posts are filled with cryptic references to demonic attacks. In one video posted from the Oklahoma City Zoo, Tilghman complains of a demon-possessed squirrel which followed him around the park.
Other videos posted three weeks before the shooting, Tilghman appears to be recording video near Lake Hefner of the cars passing by, which he claimed Satan was making sound louder.
In a previous YouTube page, another user who claimed to be Tilghman’s brother said he was mentally disturbed.
Tilghman’s major focus was on demonic activity and his belief that most, if not all, of the people around him had been replaced by clones possessed by demons and that he was one of the few “real” people in the world.
They posted a youtube video of him crying out for help just a few weeks ago:
If he was having these kind of problems, and even his brother knew, how was he allowed to continue as an armed security guard?
Sounds like a sad situation gone horribly bad.
