Nobody said the officer was quoting the suspect. He was paraphrasing the suspect.
Literally the first words in the clip I posted are “the investigators interviewed him this morning.” The key point is that the cop’s words were his own—he wasn’t quoting anyone— & the explanation he offered parroted the shooter’s motive.

Anybody who would ask that question would probably say he’d just had a bad day. And I think people do kill people because they had a bad day. It’s not an excuse, it’s a reason. It’s also not a “motive” (that’s a murder mystery term, not a criminal law one); although it does help the prosecution prove mens rea.
