The father of Trolley Square shooter Sulejmen Talovic apologizes over and over for the ordeal. Suljo Talovic says no one who knew his son saw this coming, and he believes someone pushed him to do it.

Suljo Talovic doesn’t know where his son got the guns or how he learned how to use them.

Suljo Talovic, Father of Shooter: “Somebody got (the guns)…and maybe (they were) training him and tell(ing) him (to), ‘go shoot somebody.'”

Question: So you think that somebody influenced him maybe to do this?

Suljo Talovic: “Yeah. I think somebody.”

Police are still investigating where Sulejman got his guns.

KSL: What kind of person do you think that may have been?

Suljo: No good. I don’t know he’s not good.
