    from your last link:

    ".... lives next door, and heard the gunshot. Initially he thought someone threw a brick at his front door. He says he knows the victims, as well as the gunman. "He was crazy as hell. He's been crazy all his life." Said Townsend about Mason. "There's more to that, but I'm not going to say. "


    poor neighbor .... it's tough to know someone is a loose cannon and know there is nothing you can do to stave off future violence moo

    this story at link indicates he made a lot of admissions to first responders:

    "“The driver talked to him at the scene, and the first responders, and he made a lot of spontaneous admissions. He was looking for his firearm after he got hit by the truck. He did admit to shooting people and the firearm being his.”

    I think they're now looking for motive now and apparently Mason isn't cooperating any longer.

    "The 42-year-old man accused of fatally shooting three people and injuring another Friday night was released from the hospital Wednesday and booked into the Hernando County Detention Center, according to jail records.
    George Mason III was booked at about 4:30 p.m. after being treated at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson. He suffered numerous broken bones and internal injuries when he was struck by a Dodge truck at the end of Friday's shooting rampage."

    I'm surprised they moved him with this many injuries.

    June 2018:

    Brooksville man convicted of murder awaits possible death sentence

    Although he was convicted last week on first-degree murder charges, George Mason III will wait nearly two months to find out whether he will face death for the crimes.

    The fate of the 47-year-old Brooksville man — found guilty by a jury on June 15 of fatally shooting three people and critically injuring a fourth in 2014 — could have been decided Monday morning. But when Mason appeared before Hernando County Circuit Judge Stephen Toner and a jury for his penalty phase, his attorney Devon Sharkey asked that the court hold off until August.

    "After speaking with our witnesses and gathering as much information as we can ... it seems the earliest that we would be able to proceed collectively ... would be Aug. 13," he told the court.​
