After he was initially identified as a person of interest, James' YouTube was located and shared online. In videos, he ranted about race issues and Mayor Eric Adams.

“As I leave the state of Wisconsin, about to be back in the state of Illinois, all I can say is 'Good riddance. I will never be back again alive to that mother------,'” James said in the haunting clip, which is just one of many he recorded and posted after leaving Wisconsin and leading up to his alleged attack on Tuesday.

“I am on my way to Philadelphia. I packed my bags. I got up, even though it's rainy, go to my storage unit, loaded that up and then finished my apartment off this morning,” he continued. “I am on my way to Philadelphia. I should be there... I'm going to take my time though.”

“This is the first leg of my trip, it's been a long time since I've had to drive this far. We're going to find out though. All my Instacart driving paid off or what. We are definitely going to find the f--- out.”

Police also found a U-Haul that James allegedly rented before the attack. The vehicle was found ditched a few miles from where the shooting took place.
