Transcript provided by German authorities of an Internet chatroom conversation that they said a teen identified as Tim Kretschmer had with another 17-year-old about six hours before attacking his former high school and killing 15.

Authorities said that the others participating in the chat did not appear to take it seriously, one responding: “LOL” or ‘laughing out loud” and another saying he would only believe it if he saw pictures.

_ “Bernd, I’ve had it, I’m sick of this life it’s always the same old stuff. Everyone laughs at me, nobody recognizes my potential. I’m serious Bernd _ I have a weapon here. Early tomorrow morning I will go to my former school and really toast them. Maybe I’ll go too. Keep your ears open, Bernd, you will hear from me tomorrow, remember the name of a place called Winnenden. No reports to the police now, don’t worry. I’m just baiting you.”
