A neighbor describes his interactions with Samuel Cassidy, the gunman in the San Jose VTA light rail yard mass shooting. (5/26/21)
- I met him a couple of times. He never say yes or no. He just-- just coming-- just looking at me, just staring at me all the time. When I say hi, he keep looking at me. I was scared too though. My wife scared of him too.
You see him all the time in the morning. He works at 5 o'clock in the morning every morning.
- You said you were scared of him.
- I didn't scare him, but I'm kind of scared because he just looking at you.
- He's unfriendly?
- Unfriendly. No, not at all. He doesn't talk to anybody.
- Nobody. How long has he lived in the neighborhood? He wasn't friends with anybody?
- 20 years maybe. I don't know. I've been--
- And he was friends with nobody?
Sometimes he just kind of mad at me when I backing up his driveway, he say to me, get out of here! Don't even-- you know, don't even come in this driveway. And then after that, I don't talk to him anymore. He's mean.
- Did he have children, family?
- No, he got no family, not at all. I never seen him.
- Who'd he live with, nobody?
- By himself.
- Wait. So back up.
- He's a stranger.
- You would back your vehicle into his driveway to use it to maneuver to get out and he yelled at you.
- He yelling at you, get out. Don't even come through my house. He was-- he's kind of mean. So after that, I never talked to him.
