KOB Eyewitness News 4 has obtained hundreds of pages of documents from the investigation into the Berrendo Middle School shooting in Roswell.

The pages detail dozens of witness accounts from the day of the shooting back in January.  But the last two pages of the case file show an interview with a woman who says the suspect, 12-year-old Mason Campbell, told her his whole plan to bring a gun to school months before he did it. 

The woman, who owns Glenn's Furniture Store in Roswell, says she recognized Campbell's face on the news.  She said he and his grandmother were in her store around Thanksgiving, and Campbell told her how he was tired of being bullied.  He reportedly said he planned to saw the butt off of his shotgun, bring it to school, and fire it into the air to get people to listen to him.

The store owner says Campbell's grandmother heard the whole thing and told her not to listen a word he said.  Campbell reportedly replied, "See, nobody listens to me." 

The documents also detail interviews conducted by agents with Campbell's parents and grandmother.  All three of them told authorities that Campbell was a sweet boy, but had recently been having trouble at school.  Any reference to a motive in their interviews was redacted from the report.
