The mall shooter's parents have requested a translator

Texas police searched the home of the suspected Texas mall shooter on Sunday, but authorities have yet to name the man.

FBI agents joined police in the Sunday morning search. The suspect, in his 30s, lived in the home with his parents, according to WFAA. Police shot and killed the shooter after he killed eight people in a rampage at a mall in Allen, Texas, on Saturday.

Neighbors said the man had lived in the home with his parents for years, and they had never seen him in possession of a weapon. They told WFAA that he could often be seen going to and from the house in an outfit that suggested a security role. Despite the regular sightings, neighbors added that both the man and his gray Dodge Charger had frequently been missing in recent weeks.
