It’s a story many Americans are tired of hearing and a story newsrooms have written more times then we’d probably like to have to recount. According to Indianapolis police, the FBI appears to have once again failed itself amid reports that Mr. Hole managed to slip through the cracks buying even more guns. More guns being a reference to the fact he had already had his gun seized last year, but, was able to buy two more shotguns in the months following a visit from FBI officials.
A statement from his family has been released this weekend.
“We are devastated at the loss of life caused as a result of Brandon’s actions; through the love of his family, we tried to get him the help he needed,” the statement said. “Our sincerest and most heartfelt apologies go out to the victims of this senseless tragedy. We are so sorry for the pain and hurt being felt by their families and the entire Indianapolis community.”
The statement reportedly comes as it was revealed that last year Hole ‘s mother did the right thing and tried to contact the FBI fearing that he would attempt suicide by cop (turns out he nearly did.). Officials, however, never acted much on the complaint only having seized one gun and not much else.
Officials have since revealed that he legally bought two shotguns beginning last summer and into the fall. The ongoing investigation is still underway and more details are expected as the weekend goes on.
