Police: Texas gunman called 911

A clearer recording of a Christmas day 911 call from a Texas apartment where seven people were found dead revealed a man believed to be the gunman whispering, "I am shooting people," police said.

Grapevine, Texas, authorities replayed the audio Wednesday using a different software system than previously used while preparing to release a recording of the call to media outlets, police Lt. Todd Deating said in a statement.

Police responding to a 911 call initially thought to be an "open line" went to the Grapevine apartment and found the bodies of seven family members, who apparently had just finished opening gifts at a Christmas gathering. The estranged husband of one woman - Azizolah Yazdanpanah, 56 - is thought to be the gunman, authorities said. He was dressed as Santa Claus.

    His wife left him. They are Iranian-American. His kids were about 19 & 20. His step-father (among the dead) owned a successful ranch but his real estate business had hone under and they forclosed on his home, which he was still living in. (Squatting?) His wives parents (among the dead) were only about 54, 56 and his kids were 19,20. So how old was he when he got married and they were born? How old is he now? Now that his kids are grown, his wife has left him, his credit is ruined and he is squatting in a 340,000 ish house that he used to own (which, for where he lives, is A LOT of money. You could be talking 5 bd, 4 1/2 baths, pool). And he showed up on christmas being the same santa he had been every year, while being a homeless guy squatting in his own house. What do you think happened?
