Reporter: Former class fate and current mayor of spring lake, North Carolina, is one of at least eight of may's friends told to expect a delivery after the shooter was killed by police. So far the FBI has intercepted at least three of the packages. The one headed to North Carolina plus one in Texas and Virginia. Another former classmate, Joe Paul, says may contacted him on Facebook hours before the shooting. I put two and two together that he asked for our information because maybe he was sending us a manifesto or -- I don't know what he was sending. Reporter: Federal authorities confiscated the packages and say they pose no danger to the public.

At least not a one that makes sense to anyone except perhaps the shooter himself. For "Good morning America," Ryan Owens, ABC news, Tallahassee, Florida. And Ryan, thanks to you.
