HOLLISTER, Calif. — A law enforcement official says the parents of the man who opened fire in front of the Pentagon warned authorities their son was upset and might have a gun. San Benito County Sheriff Curtis Hill told the AP the parents of John Patrick Bedell filed a missing persons report and were worried about his mental stability. After reading an e-mail from their son to an acquaintance, the parents told deputies they were worried that he had purchased a gun.

I'll post more information on this "warning" as soon as I can. One has to wonder how strong it actually was. - Greg Pollowitz
