The San Jose mass shooter was known to federal authorities going back to 2016, however they never alerted local law enforcement about his manifestos.

Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen said Friday that had local authorities been alerted, it may have helped prevent Cassidy from shooting dead nine of his coworkers at the railyard on Wednesday.

“The DA’s office was not notified,” Rosen said. “I would like to have known this in 2016.”

In 2016, Customs and Border Protection stopped Samuel Cassidy after his trip back from the Philippines.

According to a Department of Homeland Security memo obtained by The Wall Street Journal, Samuel Cassidy was in possession of “books about terrorism and fear and manifestos … as well as a black memo book filled with lots of notes about how he hates the VTA.”

57-year-old Samuel Cassidy shot and killed 9 railyard workers on Wednesday before killing himself at a Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority control center in San Jose, California.
