Omar Thornton : The Beserk Gunman

The coldblooded Connecticut mass murderer had just one regret after gunning down eight co-workers -- "I wish I could have got more of the people."

In a chilling, four-minute 911 call, truck driver Omar Thornton was as cold as ice when he told police of the racially charged rampage he had just unleashed at a beer-distribution plant.

"Yeah, is this 911?" Thornton matter-of-factly asked a police dispatcher in a cellphone call Tuesday, minutes before he blew his brains out.

"This is Omar Thornton. The, uh, the shooter over in Manchester."

In dispassionate detail, Thornton recounted for Trooper William Taylor his rationale for massacring fellow workers at the Hartford Distributors warehouse.

"Uh, you probably want to know the reason why I shot this place up," Thornton, 34, told Taylor in the call, released yesterday. "This place here is a racist place.

"They treat me bad over here. They treat all the other black employees bad over here, too," said Thornton, who was black. "So I just took it into my own hands, and, uh, handled the problem.

"I wish I could have got more of the people."

Despite the carnage, the shooter, who had smuggled his guns into the warehouse in a red metal lunchbox, said he felt "relaxed."

"I'm not going to kill anybody else," he said. "I just wanted to tell my story so you can play it back, anyway."
