Family members and acquaintances of the man who ambushed a constable and engaged SWAT officers in a 30-minute firefight described him as a "ticking time bomb" and "crazy as hell."
"At one point, we were afraid that he was going to come up here and do something to his mother and me," his stepfather Richard Weaver told KPRC. His mother Linda said her 35-year-old son was experiencing "mental difficulties" in recent years.
And Shawn Kemp, a local acquaintance of Caffall's, told The Eagle newspaper that he "fits the profile of a dude who might snap."
Caffall fatally shot Brazos County (Texas) Constable Brian Bachmann shortly after noon Monday as the officer walked toward Caffall's residence to serve eviction papers.
