(KSL News) New information is surfacing about the teen that went on a shooting rampage at Trolley Square mall.
A former relative says Sulejman Talovic may have thought he would become famous because of the shootings and was probably mentally ill.
Nasir Omerovic tells the Deseret Morning News Talovic had the mental capacity of an eight-year-old.
He says the teen probably didn't think he'd be killed during the rampage and instead thought he'd go to jail.
He also says the teen watched a violent video that could have given him the idea he could commit a mass killing.
When Talovic was younger, Omerovic says he caused so much trouble parents kept their kids away from him because they were afraid of what would happen. He says he believes the teen thought his actions wouldn't cause harm to others and that it was just a game.
