The notes reveal that part of the shooter’s goal was to show how easy it was in America for someone dealing with a serious mental illness to buy an assault-style weapon, the sources said.

Pete Palmer, who represents the family of shooter Connor Sturgeon, has not responded to CNN’s request for comment.

The nature of the notes was first reported by the Daily Mail.

Sturgeon was killed by police shortly after he fatally shot the five bank employees and then fired at police, wounding Officer Nickolas Wilt.

The 26-year-old rookie cop was shot in the head 10 days after graduating from a police academy, leaving him in critical condition.

The shooter’s brain will be examined for signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, commonly known as CTE, his father has told CNN.

He had a gun and apparently left a note found by a roommate, she said. »
