A Florida man has been charged with threatening a mass shooting after his ex-girlfriend alerted authorities to text messages he had sent her.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office   said in a statement   that 25 year-old Tristan Scott Wix of Daytona Beach had sent several messages about a possible shooting, writing in one that “a good 100 kills would be nice” and claiming he already had a location planned.

In another message, police said, Wix wrote: “A school is a weak target.. id be more likely to open fire on a large crowd of people from over 3 miles away.. I’d wanna break a world record for longest confirmed kill ever.”

Police arrested Wix Friday in a grocery store parking lot. It was not immediately apparent if Wix obtained a lawyer.

He initially told detectives that he was fascinated by mass shootings but did not own any firearms, according to the Sherriff’s Office.

But Volusia County Sheriff Michael Chitwood   told CNN Sunday   that authorities had found a .22-caliber hunting rifle and 400 rounds of ammunition in Wix’s apartment.

Chitwood described Wix’s ex-girlfriend, who showed his messages to police, as “a real hero.”

“When you look at this kid’s background, he is the profile of a shooter,” Chitwood said. “He lost his job, he lost his girlfriend, he’s depressed, he’s got the ammunition and he wants to become known for being the most prolific killer in American history.”

Wix’s arrest came hours before Ohio police   arrested another man in his early 20’s   over threats to carry out a mass shooting. Police say James Patrick Reardon, 20, tagged a local Jewish community center in an Instagram vide of a man firing a rifle, allegedly captioning the post, “Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist Seamus O’Rearedon.” O’Reardon is   scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Sounds like someone has been playing a bit too much Call Of Duty.

I don't think this boy knows a whole lot about what his rifle can actually do

Holy crap he'd have to shoot from the top of Mt Everest with a helluva tailwind for it to even go that far, not to mention actually do anything when it got there.

For sure.  I hope he can judge 6-8" which he will see a lot of times where he is going.

.22's can do a lot damage since the bullet has little mass and be easily deflected.

Sounds like he's another angry and unhappy left wing loser.

I actually looked it up, absolute max range of a .22LR "magnum" is 3,600 feet. Well short of a mile.

Guys, I think he meant can't.

That makes a lot more sense- given the bullet has little mass and be easily deflected.

Plausible. I'll give ya that one. Either way, he is still an idiot.

Or more likely another angry, embittered right wing loser considering nearly all domestic terrorists going on shooting sprees have turned out to be right wing losers.

Except the one from Dayton, OH right? Or are you trying to bury that incidence already like the media and Democratic politicians are?

Of course the answer is yes.

So? What was his motive? Wasn't political and he shot indiscriminately, (except for maybe his sister), so he wasn't targeting an ethnic group.

The El Paso shooter? Pretty much the exact opposite. He is a white supremacist, he was targeting a specific ethnic group, and his manifesto read like a trump speech. 

So that's ONE possibly left wing shooter, VS., a proven right wing shooter. 

You want to talk about all the shootings in 2018? All were tied to right wing groups.

Its amazing when people can do when they pay attention to what's going on around them.

What does that mean?

Every day they're thwarting multiple people who claim they're going to do a mass shooting.  

All across the US

It means exactly what is says.  Many, if not all, the shootings could have been avoided if people pull their heads out of their phones and payed attention to what's going on around them.

Every day they're thwarting multiple people who claim they're going to do a mass shooting.   All across the US

So what makes this asshat worth reporting on?

I'm going out on a limb here but----------this recent uptick of individuals desiring to cause a 'mass effect casualty occurrence' really has nothing to do with The Second Amendment, legal gun ownership or mental illness.  Something else is happening.  Is our society imploding?

Yes and no. We have a president that has all but openly endorsed white supremacists. His talk emboldens these scumbags and they come out of the woodwork. 

Trump is incredibly divisive, he has divided the nation more than any president in history. He openly attacks fellow Americans and he called 70% of the jews in the USA traitors, which will undoubted spurn more white supremacist shootings. Tack on his talk about Mexicans, Muslims, and pretty much anyone and everyone that isn't a rich, white Christian.

For decades the right wing has railed that America was doomed and will fail.  Is DJT the answer to their desires?

In other words, is fear, hate and the sophistication of weaponry the success they need?

Looks like a mass shooter to me. Young, white male, clearly hasn't been laid and because of that thinks the world owes him something. Gets wrapped up in Nazi bullshit and wallah.
