Hollywood gunman's ex-girlfriend: Breakup may have led to shooting


A woman who has identified herself as the ex-girlfriend of the man police killed Friday after he shot at motorists and pedestrians at a busy Hollywood intersection said that a recent breakup may have triggered the man's rampage, KTLA is reporting.

The shooter has been identified by the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office  as Tyler Brehm, 26, of Hollywood. KTLA reported that Brehm's Facebook page revealed he ended a relationship four days ago. On his page, he listed knowledge, friendship, family, money, success and "things that go fast" among his interests.

Brehm's ex-girlfriend, Alicia Alligood, 24, told KTLA-TV Channel 5 that she and Brehm dated for four years before breaking up this month.
