ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – A former co-worker of Orlando shooting suspect Omar Mateen said he was an angry, loud, profane man who used slurs for gay people, blacks, Jews and women.
Mateen was a security guard at the G4S company, which identifies itself on its website as “the leading global integrated security company.”
“He never used other words to describe them,” said Daniel Gilroy, who worked with Mateen at G45, told the Tama Bay Times.
Mateen also regularly made threats of violence, according to Gilroy.
“He talked about killing people all the time,” Gilroy told The New York Times. And Gilroy wasn’t surprised when he learned of the massacre: “I saw it coming.”
Gilroy said Mateen started badgering him and sending dozens of text messages to him daily. Gilroy said he reported Mateen’s behavior to his bosses.
