San Diego police arrested a man who simulated a mass shooting in a video
In September, a video was posted on YouTube in which a man shoots on a body-camera, as a mass shooting would have happened if his weapon had been loaded. The California authorities became interested in this video and arrested the man for possession of an assault weapon and possession of a high capacity magazine.
The author of the video was identified as 36-year-old Steven Homoki. The video shows that he wanders around the hotel room with unloaded weapons and directs it at the pedestrians through the window. From time to time he throws a pistol to the floor, then takes an assault rifle, which is replaced by a more powerful and accurate weapon with a sniper scope.
The arrest warrant contained data on his location. Homoki reportedly shot a video at the Sofia Hotel in San Diego.
The video shows that the man is drunk. At one point, he loses his balance and falls to the floor, strewn with bullets. He grabs one cartridge and loads it into the magazine, then rises, reloads the gun, directs it out the window and pulls the trigger.
"You drop one mag, you pick up another, right? Then you pick up another. ... Then you drop it, you drop the gun, pick up another gun," pronounces Homoki, lurching inside the room.
According to official information, Steven Homoki was arrested on Thursday at his home. During the search, several items of firearms were identified and seized.
Police reports also indicate a threat to the life of the child, but the authorities did not disclose details.
