Houston shooting investigation: Who is Nathan DeSai?

Source: ABC Eyewitness 13 News

HOUSTON (KTRK) --
We're learning more about a Houston attorney whose vehicle was connected to a violent shooting Monday that injured nine people in southwest Houston.

The HPD bomb squad was in the process of searching Nathan DeSai's Porsche when Eyewitness News confirmed the vehicle was registered to him.

A source told abc13 the vehicle was filled with weapons, prompting officials to use a bomb robot to search the car.

We spoke with DeSai's father who said the attorney lived near Weslayan and Bissonnet, the site of this morning's shooting. He also confirmed the attorney drove a black Porsche.

2. I think Desai surname is primarily Indian

I don't know DeSai is...whether is French or just a different spelling of Desai.

8. He's probably of Indian ethnicity

We have an M.D. (pulmonologist) here in my community with that last name. He's probably of Indian ethnicity. Whatever he is, he seems thoroughly "Americanized." His family could have been here for a few generations.

9. I don't know, for that matter, I could care less.

What *IS* important is the lawyer was having difficulties, so he went the "shoot 'em all, suicide by cop" route.

4. A neighbor says he was waving around what they thought was an AR a few weeks ago.

The wife of a shooting victim spoke with KHOU 11 News and had further insight into the possible mental state of DeSai prior to the shooting.

"What personal problems he has going on in his life, who knows. I do know that there was a confrontation with a roofing company a few weeks ago that he had a problem with and I believe he was waving around his AR, but what set him off at 6:12 this morning, I don't know," said Jennifer Moredo.

According to Jason Delgado, property manager of the The Oaks complex, there were two incidents reported with the suspect in the past few weeks. Regarding the roofing project that Jennifer Moredo referenced, one of the roofers called police and said he had been threatened by DeSai with a gun. HPD was not able to make an arrest because the gun was not pointed at the roofer.

Most recently, there were maintenance issues at DeSai's unit. Delgado says that DeSai sent threatening emails to a man in the office.

7. It's not as if he was a threat to anyone.

He was just messing around and waving his gun about to make his point. He didn't actually pose a danger to anyone, and it was his legal right to openly display his weapon.

Um, wait...

12. Oh my

A shooter who wounded nine people in Houston on Monday morning was wearing Nazi paraphernalia, the Houston Police Department said.

Click2Houston reports that two law enforcement sources have confirmed that police found the shooter wearing a swastika-covered, World War II-style German uniform after they fatally shot him on Monday.

16. He was wearing Nazi Swatikas and other Nazi stuff...

that said:

Upon further investigation, it has been revealed that Herr Desai is an active (shooter) member of the Trump Bowel Movement, this activity was a Promotion for The Debate tonite and is part of a campaign by the Mighty Whitey Trump Militia to encourage their Second Amendment Election Campaign.  Nothing wrong here folks, just a part of a Patriotic Political Campaign.

Sometimes you just gotta pump the brand
