Missouri police foil mass murder plot at `Twilight` screening

BOLIVAR, MO (KCTV5) - A 20-year-old man is accused of buying assault rifles and more than 400 rounds of ammunition in a plot to commit mass murder at a Twilight screening and a Missouri Walmart.

Blaec Lammers' plot was foiled because his mother alerted police, according to court documents.

The woman told police her son had bought weapons similar to those used by a gunman inside an Aurora, CO, movie theater showing the premiere of the latest Batman movie. Twelve people died and 58 were injured in Colorado.

"His mother further stated that, with the opening of the new Twilight movie, she was concerned that Blaec Lammers may have intentions of shooting people at the movie," according to the court documents.

After he was taken in for questioning, Lammers admitted he had bought the firearms with the intention of shooting up the movie theater in Bolivar on Sunday. However, he later decided to also target a Walmart because he feared running out of ammunition and he would have access to additional ammunition inside the Walmart, according to court documents.

He also had been practicing using the weapons at a nearby shooting range, according to court documents.

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

The mother contacted police on Thursday. 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, according to court documents.

Lammers was not convicted in state court in association with this. Before Friday, he had only faced speeding tickets.

"Blaec Lammers stated that he had a lot in common with the people involved in (recent mass 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," according to court documents.

He then told officers he bought the assault weapons with the plans of killing people watching the Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie on Sunday, according to court documents. He had already purchased tickets and said, "he was going to shoot people at the movie theater on that night," according to court documents.

Despite purchasing 400 rounds of ammunition, Lammers allegedly told police that he feared running out of ammunition.

"So he decided that he would go and shoot people at Walmart in Bolivar," according to court documents. "Blaec Lammers stated that he would walk into the store and just start shooting people at random and if 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. Blaec Lammers then stated that he would then turn himself into police when they arrived."

One rifle was purchased on Monday while the second was bought on Tuesday. Court documents did not state where Lammers made the purchases.

Lammers said he had been to a shooting range in Aldrich to practice using the rifles.

"Blaec Lammers stated that he had never shot a gun before and wanted to make sure he knew how they functioned," according to court documents.

If I were named "Blaec Lammers," I think I might have homicidal tendencies, too.

Blaec? His name is Blaec?!! That's not a name, it's a federally-funded, Tea Party scooter!

I bet I can guess his race and his political persuasion: White and arch-conservative.

I hope the judge takes into consideration during sentencing that it *was* a Twilight movie, after all....

Twilight? Why target Twihards? Their punishment is being Twihards. Death would lift that curse.

Blaec from Bolivar. Only in America. Kudos to the mother for turning him in, although maybe not so much for her parenting skills. I guess you can turn out fucked up even with proper parenting, though.

NOT HOT.

Let me guess: He sent fanmail to either Taylor Lautner or P-Ratz and he didn't get any response. My guess it was Taylor Lautner (his managment not being cool with paying attention to male - most likely gay - Twilight fans).

This is one mass murder that most of us would have been very happy to let happen.

Or maybe he's just tired of Twilight fantards, along with the rest of the world.

He has a history of mental illness and was off his meds at the time. Momma did the right thing.

"check his fb page friends - LATINO, not white, and more likely to be an Obama supporter"

Please, just because he's a Latino doesn't mean he's an Obama supporter.

It's usually freepers who are obsessed with guns

What a traitor of a mother. How could she betray her own blood like that? Shame.

r32, great.

Now he'll go to prison and never get the meds/help he obviously needs.

Our treatment of the mentally ill is barbaric.

Yes, R37, it always sucks when your mother interrupts your plans for mass murder.
