TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Over three hours of webcam recording on FSU shooter Myron May's laptop is providing an inside looking into his mind right before he opened fire at Strozier Library.

In the video, May addressed his friends and family in what he calls his "last words" as he timelines the events leading to his breaking point.

May said, "it is with a heavy heart that I am in front of you now to make this video...kind of my last words."

May spoke about his paranoia and coined himself as a targeted individual, who has been a victim of stalking and harassment. In his videos, he says that he had stalkers follow him into church and other places while he was in Las Crucas and Houston.

May brought up his own paranoia about being a targeted individual, saying that while in Houston, "every 10 minutes cars would just be flying down the street at rapid paces making loud noises. About every 30 minutes or so I would hear car horns, like people blowing their car horns. The goal is to obviously keep me under the noise campaign and not really get to relax."

He said that the noises followed him outside of Houston - back to his own apartment. He explained in the video that the voices sounded like they were narrating his life. Because of these voices, he says that he began to believe that everybody he came in contact with was a threat.

He says that began to fear for his own well-being, blaming his status as a targeted individual as an excuse for the debilitation of his mental status.

He also addressed his faith in the video and prayed for himself and his future actions.
