Investigators say an accused killer told them he should have used a shotgun and not a pistol to ensure that he would've killed two people.
Jason Croff admitted to the attacks that took place on December 6. He told investigators that both victims were still alive after the assault.
Daniel Andrews died from injuries he suffered from a gunshot wound.
Croff confessed that he shot Andrews and sliced William Carlisle's throat while the two men slept. Andrews remains in critical condition and is expected to survive.
Croff stole a truck and led police on a highway chase through three Panhandle counties before he was arrested.
Bay County sheriff's investigators continue to probe the attacks and are reviewing evidence seized during a search of the trailer.
