In a frightening development, CBS News is reporting that authorities in Missouri arrested a 20-year-old man last week after his mother reported that her son was planning to to kill theater-goers at a screening of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" yesterday.
Blaec Lammers, who reportedly had purchased assault rifles and more than 400 rounds of ammunition, told authorities that "he had a lot in common" with mass murderer James Holmes, who killed 12 people and injured 58 more at a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora, Colorado on July 20.
"Blaec Lammers stated that he had a lot in common with the people involved in (recent mass shootings)," court documents stated. "Blaec Lammers stated that he was quiet, kind of a loner, had recently purchased firearms and didn't tell anybody about it, and had homicidal thoughts."
Lammers had apparently already purchased his ticket to a Sunday showing of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 »
