The mother of the El Paso Walmart gunman contacted the Allen, Texas, Police Department weeks before the shooting to express concern about her son owning an AK type firearm, family lawyers told CNN.

The mother did not provide her name or her son's name but said she was troubled he owned the weapon given his age, maturity level, and lack of experience handling such a firearm.

A public safety officer with the police department told Patrick Crusius' mother that her son was legally allowed to buy the weapon.

The attorneys said the call was simply "informational" since Crusius, "was not a volatile, explosive, erratic behaving kid."

"It's not like alarm bells were going off," attorney Chris Ayres told CNN.

Crusius, 21, killed 22 and injured dozens more in the attack. He has been charged with capital murder and is being held without bond at the El Paso County Detention Facility.
