The story says that Rodolfo Valdivia Aceves told a coworker during a fire drill that he thought it would be a good idea to trip the fire alarm in the case of an active shooter situation.

He later told that coworker of his plans to shoot people at the Amazon facility in which they worked and that he looked at the Uvalde shooter as "an idol".

The conversation took place on Friday, but the coworker didn't alert authorities until Monday.

According to Yahoo! News, Aceves' family says that he spent some time in a mental facility when he was 16 years old, and also that he had discontinued his medication several years ago.
