Tristan Wix Mass Shooting

Department of Public Safety and Florida Department of Law Enforcement worked to track Wix down and take him into custody without incident. Wix does not appear to have any prior criminal history.

According to Volusia County documents, Wix was booked into the Volusia County Jail and is currently being held without bond.

Tristan Wix Ex-girlfriend

Wix sent several unsettling texts to his ex-girlfriend. In one message he discussed his disdain for school shootings. “A school is a weak target.. id be more likely to open fire on a large crowd of people from over 3 miles away.. I’d wanna break a world record for longest confirmed kill ever.”


He sent another message talking about his interest in a mass shooting. “I wanna open fire on a large crowd of people from over 3 miles away before I die and I need a spotter (laughing cry face emoji).”


After viewing Wix’s violent plans, police attempted to track him down. They went to his worksite, only to discover he’d recently lost his job. When authorities finally located Wix and surrounded him with guns drawn in a Winn-Dixie grocery store parking lot, he seemed confused. He even apologized for his reaction while being swarmed by police


Chitood believes Tristan Wix had the potential to carry out his threats. “When you look at this kid’s background, he is the profile of a shooter,” he told CNN. “He lost his job, he lost his girlfriend, he’s depressed, he’s got the ammunition and he wants to become known for being the most prolific killer in American history.”


Wix originally told detectives he didn’t own any weapons but was fascinated by mass shootings. A search of Wix’s Daytona Beach residence uncovered a 22-gauge hunting rifle and 400 rounds of ammunition. It’s unknown if the gun was legally obtained.


Call her “A real hero,” Chitwood commended Wix’s ex-girlfriend for alerting authorities to Wix’s potentially deadly plan. “This is the way the system is supposed to work,” he said.
