The Daily Times of Farmington, New Mexico, reports a lengthy incident report issued by the San Juan County Sheriff's Office describes how 21-year-old Aztec resident William Atchison went virtually under the radar from the FBI and local authorities.

The report describes how Atchison came to purchase the handgun he used in the killings and was in contact with and talked with 18-year-old Ali David Sonboly, who shot and killed nine people in a Munich, Germany mall on July 22, 2016.

Authorities say Atchison walked to Aztec High School in December, killed Francisco "Paco" Fernandez and Casey Jordan Marquez before killing himself.
