HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) - The gunman who went on a shooting rampage at his South Florida apartment building, killing six people, was a lonely man who spoke about having pent up anger.

That's the description neighbors and others who knew 42-year-old Pedro Vargas are providing a day after he was shot and killed by police at the end of a violent eight-hour standoff.

Jorge Bagos told The Associated Press Sunday he frequently saw Vargas at the local gym where both exercised. He said Vargas spoke about releasing anger through his workouts.

Bagos said the gunman expressed frustration over bad experiences with women and losing all his hair from using steroids.
