DENVER (AP) — A man accused of killing five people in a rampage in Denver is believed to have written fictional books self-published online that named some of his real-life victims and described similar attacks.

Denver police spokesman Doug Schepman says the writings are part of the investigation into what led Lyndon James McLeod to carry out Monday’s shootings.

Four of the people shot were attacked at tattoo shops, raising questions about why they were targeted.

Police say McLeod knew most of his victims through either business or personal relationships.

They were shot at several locations around the metro area.
