SummaryAccording to Vigen's family, Eric had bipolar disorder and was in a manic state before the shooting. He also made comments that he wanted to get into a shootout with the police and that he was armed with a weapon. Thinking that law enforcement could help her son as they had done in the past, Eric's mother called police and told them that he was possibly armed and in need of help.
