A gunman shot at least three people in an Arizona shopping district on Wednesday evening, after reportedly filming his assault on Snapchat.
The suspect - who has not been named by police - was identified as 20-year-old Armando Hernandez by his mother, 12News reports.
Disturbing footage, thought to have been taken by Hernandez, shows a gunman carrying out his rampage. He says: 'Hello, my name is Armando Junior Hernandez and I'm gonna be the shooter of Westgate 2020.'
Flashing his beer can, he then shows guns in the backseat of his car. He adds: 'Let's get this done.'
Officer Tiffany Ngalula did not confirm the identity of the shooter Wednesday evening but did say police are aware of the video circulating on social media.
The suspect is said to have surrendered and is now in custody.
One of those injured is in critical condition. The two others were expected to survive following the shooting near a popular shopping and entertainment district west of Phoenix. None of the victims have been named.
A former classmate of Hernandez described him as 'troubled' and 'anti-government'.
