Officials say the man who randomly shot two people along a Georgia highway in Hall County "idolized" Parkland, Florida, school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz. A third person - a woman - was slightly injured by broken glass, authorities said.

Detectives, speaking with them Friday night, learned that he was a landscaper, but, according to Crouch, there was nothing within his employment history that specifically led him to Hall County or that particular stretch of highway.

"The incident unfolded on May 4 shortly before 11:50 a.m.", Booth said. Hall County 911/Central Communications "received a call from a motorist traveling on Ga. 365. 365 who said her husband had been shot as they were heading north near Tribble Gap Road in the northeast portion of the county". "911 callers also indicated a second adult male motorist had been hit by a bullet".

Deputies immediately responded, setting up a perimeter.

Sofa stated Harbour hit seven vehicles on Freeway 365 close to Whitehall Highway. One deputy drew his weapon and ran toward the vehicle. The driver of the Buick looked at the deputy and drove off, heading south on Ga. The sheriff's office said 26-year-old Rex Harbour fired 17 shots at several cars late Friday evening. The two individuals were hospitalized with non-life-threatening accidents, and " the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Claimed. Harbour was airlifted to a local Atlanta hospital but was said to die while en route.

"Possibly he thought this was an isolated area that he could come up and shoot at people and get away with it", Couch said.

Harbour hid in the woods as he waited for motorists on the side of Georgia 365, Couch said. A search of the vehicle he'd been driving revealed three 9mm handguns, a.22 caliber rifle, one 12- gauge shotgun and a BB gun. It appears that a 9mm pistol was the only weapon used in the shooting.

Netflix chief on Cannes boycott
Last month, Netflix pulled out of the festival completely after hard discussions with fest organizers. Reed Hastings indicated that discussions with the Cannes festival organisers are underway.

Then they searched Harbour's home, where he lived with his parents, and found "hate-filled" handwritten documents. "He called Nikolas Cruz a, "hero" and said Cruz gave him, 'courage and confidence'". 'Just hate-filled in targeting pretty much everybody'.

State investigators and the Federal Bureau of Investigation turned up no criminal history.

After an investigation, the FBI and GBI said that Harbour had no history of criminal or violent actions and was not associated with any violent groups.

"What his motivation was different than simply hate, we don't know right now", Corridor County Sheriff Gerald Sofa informed reporters.
