A 33-year-old man identified as a suspect in the Allen Mall shooting, sources say

FBI agents and Dallas police officers arrived at the suspected shooter’s home in Dallas to investigate and question family members.

ALLEN, Texas — The suspect in the Allen outlet shooting has been identified as 33-year-old Mauricio Garcia, law enforcement sources confirmed to the WFAA.

Garcia was killed by police at the scene of the shooting on Saturday when eight victims were killed at the Allen Premium Outlets.

Later Saturday night, there were several FBI agents inside a house in Dallas’ Northeast Patrol Division, and outside were the Dallas Police.

Several sources state that this is the house where the suspected shooter, Garcia, lived with his parents.

The sources said the FBI also visited and searched an extended stay motel where Garcia had stayed.

The FBI confirmed they were at two different locations on Saturday as part of the investigation, but did not provide further details.

UPDATE: Everything we know about the Allen Mall shooting

Sources said officers were inside the home in northeast Dallas on Saturday talking to the suspect’s family. They had also asked for a translator while there, according to the sources.

FBI agents showed up Saturday night, neighbors said, and had been there ever since. They say the suspected shooter was in his 30s and had lived here for as long as anyone can remember.

They say he drove a gray Charger that was always parked in front of the house, except in the last few weeks, when they realized it wasn’t there.

Neighbors say they don’t recall any police activity or problems in the residence.

Neighbors say the suspect wore some sort of security guard uniform at all times, though no one says they’ve ever seen him with any sort of weapon. They say he was very quiet, but say they’ve noticed some unusual quiet behavior.

Federal agents will likely spend days — or even weeks — going through all of the suspected shooter’s belongings, computers, phones and other belongings, and anything else they can find to determine a possible motive for the shooting.

The Dallas Police Department’s computers are still down after the city’s system was attacked by ransomware Wednesday, so it’s hard for them to get information about previous calls home, they say.
