GRAPEVINE -- A conflicted picture emerged Tuesday of a Colleyville man believed to have fatally shot six people, including his estranged wife and two children, and then himself on Christmas morning.
One woman who was part of a happy hour group that included Aziz "Bob" Yazdanpanah described him as a sweet joker who adored his family. But another said she received a puzzling text message from him on Dec. 4, a few months after his wife and two children moved out of their Colleyville home and into a Grapevine apartment complex.
The shootings occurred inside the apartment amid opened Christmas gifts, police said.

At the start of the call, a man believed to be the shooter initially gasps, "Help, help!"
"You need help? Are you sick?" the dispatcher says.
His chilling response, in a low whisper: "I'm shooting people." "What was that?" the dispatcher responds, "Do you need an ambulance or police? Hello?" No response can be heard.
