This is AWFUL!

When it comes to tragic events such as Sunday morning’s shooting at the Orlando, Florida nightclub Pulse that left 50 dead and 53 injured, any extra details can help people understand what would push a person to do such a thing.

Since the deadly shooting, there has been a ton of information coming out regarding shooter Omar Mateen — from his dad explaining that his son’s motivations were not religious to Mateen’s ex-wife is saying he’s “mentally unstable.”

Well, now we have a bit more insight into the sadistic man’s past as former classmates have opened up about the now deceased gunman — and none of it sounds good!

Leslie Hall, who was a fifth grade classmate of Omar’s at Mariposa Elementary, opened up to TMZ and said that one day the young boy threatened to bring a gun to school and kill everyone. YIKES!

Apparently the “joke” was not received very well at all and the kids told the teacher which ended up getting Omar suspended for two weeks.

Though Hall doesn’t remember what caused the violent child to make the threat, she did say that she knows her mom had multiple meetings with faculty about Mateen bullying her and the other students.

Not only that, but the wild behavior didn’t stop after elementary school as its been said he threw chairs and spit on teachers in middle school and even bragged that Osama bin Laden was his uncle to his high school buddies.

There’s been no word yet from the school district, but this coupled with Omar’s ex-wife’s comments seem to be starting to paint a picture of the obviously disturbed man.

What do you think about the new details from Omar’s past?
