The man who allegedly shot at least three people at an Arizona shopping complex Wednesday night captured the attack in chilling video posted on Snapchat, where he holds up a can of beer and declares what he is about to carry out, according to reports.

The suspect, whom police have not named, has been identified by his mother as 20-year-old Armando Hernandez, according to 12News.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Hello, my name is Armando Junior Hernandez and I’m gonna be the shooter of Westgate 2020,” the man says as he flashes the beer can and shows guns in his back seat, the Sun reported.

“Let’s get this done, guys!” Hernandez declares.

Twitter has removed the video for violating its community standards, but it is available online elsewhere.

Glendale Police confirmed on Twitter that Hernandez is the suspect in custody.

“In regards to last nights #ActiveShooter #Westgate area we have a total of 3 reported gunshot victims. 1 is in critical condition, 1 was transported with non life threatening injury, & 3rd was non life threatening injury and was not taken to a hospital. Only shooter in custody,” the police stated.

FoxLA reporter Bill Melugin said in a tweet, “Wow, I just watched the video the #Westgate shooter in Glendale, AZ posted on Snapchat, which I will not repost. He’s wearing a facemask and says he’s doing it to “get back to society.” He argues with a woman lying on the ground who says “you already got me dude!”. Creepy stuff.”
