Man Charged with Plotting 'Twilight' Mass Shooting


A 20-year-old Missouri man was charged Friday with planning a mass shooting this weekend at either a screening of the latest Twilight movie or a local Walmart.

Blaec Lammers, of Bolivar, is accused of buying assault rifles and more than 400 rounds of ammunition in a plot mimicking the July mass shooting that killed 12 and wounded 57 at an Aurora, Colo., theater showing the premiere of the latest Batman movie, the Springfield News-Leader reports.

Lammers was charged with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action. He is being held on $500,000 bail.

His mother contacted police Thursday, saying Lammers had bought assault weapons and ammunition, and was concerned he "may have intentions of shooting people at the movie," The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2, according to court documents. He told police he had bought a ticket for a Sunday show.

He then stated he might instead target the Walmart Supercenter in Bolivar "because if he ran out of ammunition he would be able to break the glass where the ammunition is stored and get more, writes the News-Leader, published by Gannett, USA TODAY's parent.

Police Detective Dusty Ross, who interviewed Lammers, told the Bolivar Herald-Free Press, that Lammers said he planned to surrender after the shooting at the B&B Bolivar Cinema 5. The theater manager would not comment. Walmart has not released any statement.

According to the police affidavit, signed by Ross, Lammers said he had bought two assault rifles for hunting. When asked about "recent shootings in the news," he "stated that he had a lot in common with the people. .. [He] stated he was quiet, kind of a loner, had recently purchased firearms and didn't tell anybody about it, and had homicidal thoughts," according to a probable-cause statement.

Lammers said he bought the guns Monday and Tuesday -- police did not say where -- and went to nearby Aldrich on Tuesday to practice shooting. According to the police affidavit, he said he had never fired a gun before and "wanted to make sure he knew how they functioned." He also said he was currently not taking his medication, which was not specified.

Ross said he does not believe anyone else was involved in the alleged plot.

"I think it would have been something he would have done solely on his own," Ross told the Herald-Free Press. "You'll come across people who will make threats toward people and events but they don't actually take the substantial steps that he took in planning it out."

The affidavit also stated that in 2009, Lammers "claimed he wanted to fatally stab a Walmart employee and followed the employee around the store before he was contacted by officers." KCTV5 says he was "not convicted in state court" but does not say whether he was charged.

the article states he was not taking his medication.

Though the medicine in question is not mentioned, I am assuming it was for a mental rather than a physical ailment.

I don't think its right to assume there was any parental failing without more info (even though I am making assumptions about the medication!)

Thank heaven this was foiled. His mother did a great job. I can't imagine that was easy for her even though she knew it was right.

Your right its not about her failing as a parent, i could tell it was a mental issues by having homicidal thoughts. that's a symptom of some mental health diagnosis, after hearing all the mental health hearings i have to listen too daily,,, and one in particular of a girl that had homicidal thoughts was scary like she was Carrie from the movie..its no joke.

interesting that he was able to obtain guns so easily...

i was sitting in the midnight premiere showing of Paranormal Activity 4 with friends...as soon as the lights go down for the previews this fcking idiot leans over and says, "damn, i just thought about that shooting in Aurora. that was crazy"..us:why did you have to share that with us???...him: i know, i know, it's just crazy sorry.  

it ruined the whole first 45 min of the movie for me b/c i was uneasy.

if he doesn't have a criminal background he can get one.. but if he's ever been under a civil commitment he can't..
