Minnesota (WDAY TV) -- We're learning new details on the man who police say shot and killed 5 people at his Minneapolis work place before turning the gun on himself.

Friends of Andrew Engeldinger's family say, his parents were so concerned about his growing paranoia 2 years ago that they enrolled in a course for families of the mentally ill.

They say Engeldinger cut-ties with his parents after they took the course.

Joe Endeldinger, the suspect's dad, says, "our son struggled for years with mental illness, in the last few years he had no longer had contact with us this is not an excuse for his action sadly but it may be just a partial explanation."
