Authorities believe the former agent – believed to be from Texas – was one of at least six individuals who regularly communicated with accused gunman Payton Gendron in an online chat room where racist hatred was discussed.

The agent is allegedly one of six people who the mass murderer, Payton Gendron, invited to see his attack plan a half an hour before he carried it out. The tragic shooting carried out by a man full of hate for African-Americans killed 10 people and injured three others.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating whether any of the people who received the invitation to view the plan actually opened the invitation. According to The Buffalo News,

The FBI has verified that none of these people called law enforcement to warn them about the shooting. The FBI database shows no advance tips from anyone that this shooting was about to happen.
