Did Texas gunman hint at school mass murder in video game rant? Dead by Daylight player ‘threatened to “shoot up a school” with an AR-15 after losing a game hours before Uvalde rampage with rivals reporting warning to FBI’

  • Gamer said they heard another player threatening to ‘shoot up a school’ online after losing at a video game only days before Salvador Ramos killed 21 people
  • The user said she reported the outburst to the FBI before the school massacre
  • A friend of Ramos’ said he would ‘talk about school shootings all the time’ while playing Call of Duty but ‘everyone on the game always thought he was joking’ 

Only days before 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos killed 21 people in a Texas school massacre on Tuesday, a disturbed woman was reporting a chilling threat to the FBI she had heard while playing a video game.

When playing the 2016 survival horror multiplayer online game Dead by Daylight, the woman heard a male player becoming enraged after losing the game.

The player, she reported, had ‘started saying they were going to shoot up a school’. 

Disturbed by the comments, the player recorded them and said she sent the audio to the FBI, along with the creators of the game, Behaviour Interactive. 

‘They mentioned they had some type of gun and kept saying it was going to be all of our fault,’ said the player on Reddit.

Going back over the recording, the user later commented the gun had been an AR-15 — the same weapon Ramos used to kill 19 children and two teachers at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.

‘[I] recorded the entire postchat and we all kind of brushed it off as him just saying edge lord type sh*t but i just am like in disbelief because i’ve never seen someone say that before,’ said the user after posting in r/deadbydaylight, the game’s subreddit.

Dead by Daylight is inspired by slasher-horror films such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, and other survival-horror media. 

In the game, four players are assigned the role of ‘The Survivors’ who must hide and survive another player: ‘The killer’. If caught, the survivors are impaled on hooks and sacrificed.
