A Florida man accused of threatening a mass shooting detailed his plan to kill 100 people in a slew of threatening text messages sent to his ex-girlfriend, police say.

Body camera footage shows the moment 25-year-old Tristan Scott Wix was arrested Friday outside a supermarket in Daytona Beach Shores after his ex, whose name was withheld, showed the alarming messages to authorities.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said Wix expressed his desire to ‘break a world record for longest (sic) confirmed kill ever’, allegedly writing ‘a good 100 kills would be nice’.

He also wrote that he wanted to die and ‘have fun doing it’.

Investigators said Wix had already decided on a location but did not say what it was. He allegedly told authorities he was fascinated with mass shootings but claimed he didn’t own any firearms.

A hunting rifle with about 400 rounds of ammunition were later discovered at his apartment, according to police.

Wix was one of three men arrested in the last week on charges of threatening a mass shootings in Florida, Connecticut and Ohio, just two weeks after the country saw two devastating massacres that left 29 dead in 24 hours.
