A Thousand Oaks man who went on a shooting rampage inside his ex-girlfriend's Simi Valley home earlier this month bought a gun a week before the attack and left a note explaining his actions, according to court documents. The note, left on 24-year-old Maria Calderon's front porch by Reynaldo Rodriguez, stated that he had contracted the HIV virus and blamed her. "The note stated he decided to die in Maria's arms," according to a search warrant affidavit filed last week.
