Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio New information this afternoon into the background of the man who went on a shooting rampage at Trolley Square this week.

KSL Newsradio has learned that in November of 2004, officials at the Horizonte School contacted Sulejmen Talovic's parents to tell them he'd violated the school's Internet use policy, he was found looking up AK-47s on the Web.

That's when a source tells us the parents took Talovic out of school. We contacted Talovic's Aunt, who said school officials did speak with his mother.

The school district says it can't comment on any academic records or disciplinary action.

There are some who think his background and his leaving two other schools should have sent up some red flags.

Salt Lake City Police aren't commenting, saying it's part of an active investigation. They say Talovic was also a juvenile at the time he left the Horizonte school, and juvenile records aren't discussed.
