Police officials stand outside of the L.A. Fitness Center where a gunman reportedly opened fire in the aerobics room Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2009 in Bridgeville, Pa.
The man who shot and killed three women at a health club aerobics class in suburban Pittsburgh kept a dark web diary detailing an earlier plot to shoot up the gym before he "chickened out." Cops said he did not have a relationship with the victims.
George Sodini, 48, apparently wrote of his troubles with women, alcohol abuse and his plan to shoot up the gym 4,610-word Web page that showed his intentions to go through with the horrific shooting over the course of nine months. The site's author wrote of targeting the same Tuesday-night aerobics class on Jan. 6.
"It's 8:45PM: I chickened out!" he wrote. "I brought the loaded guns, everything. Hell!"
Sodini, who had four guns, turned off the lights and sprayed more than 50 bullets into the " Latin impact" dance aerobics class filled with women Tuesday night before he turned the weapon on himself.
