 Samuel Cassidy, the 57-year-old transit worker who opened fire on his co-workers, held anger toward his workplace for years, police said. Customs and Border Protection officers who stopped him as he returned from a trip to the Philippines in 2016 found books about terrorism, manifestos and a notebook detailing how he detested the transportation authority, known as the V.T.A. reports the New York Times.  Deputy Cian Jackson, a spokesman for the San Jose Sheriff’s Office, said a witness reported that the gunman told someone at the scene that he was not going to hurt the person, suggesting that he had particular targets in mind. “He was very deliberate, very fast,” she said. “He knew where employees would be.” The Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office identified the victims as Paul Delacruz Megia, 42; Taptejdeep Singh, 36; Adrian Balleza, 29; Jose Dejesus Hernandez III, 35; Timothy Michael Romo, 49; Michael Joseph Rudometkin, 40; Alex Ward Fritch, 49; Abdolvahab Alaghmandan, 63; and Lars Kepler Lane, 63.
