In wake of the tragic Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting, a fear of many has come true. A copycat shooter planning to disrupt a Prince George County, MD screening of The Dark Knight Rises has emerged, but this time he was stopped by police.
Authorities in Prince George’s and Anne Arundel counties have foiled what they believe would have been a mass shooting in the style of the one that killed 12 people in a Denver-area movie theater, police sources tell ABC 7 News.
Law enforcement sources tell ABC 7’s Brad Bell that the suspect, who has yet to be identified, was arrested in Crofton on Thursday night. According to officials, the man was facing termination from his job in Prince George’s County.
Authorities say they found an “arsenal” of weapons in his home at the time of his arrest and that he had made threats directed toward his employer.
