(fashion) Seth Ator, 36, has been identified as the shooter who killed seven people and injured 22 others during a spree on Saturday afternoon in Odessa, Texas
The West Texas shooter's neighbor said he carried a rifle while yelling at her over leaving trash in a nearby dumpster and that he used to shoot animals from his rooftop.
Veronica Alonzo told CNN that Seth Ator, 36, of Ector County, Texas, was her neighbor and that he had gone to her house last month, while carrying a large rifle, to yell at her for leaving garbage in a nearby dumpster.
Ator was identified by on the Odessa Police Department's Facebook page Sunday as being the gunman who carried out the mass shooting in Odessa, Texas, on Saturday. He was shot and killed by police in the parking lot of the Cinergy movie theater in Odessa that afternoon.
Ator's shooting spree, which began after a traffic stop, left seven dead, between the ages of 15 to 57. Twenty-two people were injured, including a 17-month-old girl and a police officer.
Alonzo said that she called police over the incident during which Ator yelled at her, but that they did not respond because her home is difficult to locate and doesn't show up on GPS.

She also said that he often shot animals in his yard while he was up in a structure on top of his home. He would then go and retrieve their corpses later.
Alonzo said that investigators were at Ator's home Sunday, putting small red flags at various locations outside his property, where she said he would shoot at the animals.
She claimed that Ator didn't have running water or electricity in his home and that when it was cold, she saw him sitting in his Toyota Camry with the heater on.
Alonzo's revelations came on the heels of additional shooting victims being identified.
