Missouri man arrested for killing spree plot

Police have arrested a Missouri man who was plotting an Aurora-style movie massacre. With a ticket to a Sunday showing of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 already purchased, authorities report Blaec Lammers intended to kill.

Missouri man arrested for killing spree plot

Breaking Dawn fans in Missouri owe a special thank-you to police and the mother of a man named Blaec Lammers. Together, it appears they have prevented a shooting massacre in the same style of the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, during a showing of The Dark Knight Rises.

KSDK news out of St. Louis reports Blaec Lammers was charged Friday morning with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action. He is currently being held on $500,000 bail.

One day earlier, Lammers' mother had contacted authorities to inform them of her 20-year-old son's plans. She revealed he had purchased weapons similar to the ones used in the Aurora theater killing spree.

A police officer picked up the troubled man at a Sonic restaurant in Missouri, and he agreed to be taken to the station. There, he stated he had purchased two assault rifles for hunting along with 400 rounds of ammunition.

A statement from the police reports, "Blaec Lammers stated that he had a lot in common with the people that have been involved in those shootings. 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."

Along with possessing a ticket to a Sunday showing of Breaking Dawn Part 2, Lammers also had plans to kill inside of a Walmart store.

"Blaec Lammers stated that he would walk into the store and just start shooting people at random," court documents reveal. "[I]f he ran out of ammunition... he would just break the glass where the ammunition is stored and get some more and keep on shooting until police arrived."
