A 20-year old Missouri man has admitted he planned to shoot up a theater at the screening of the newest Twilight movie.

The Springfield News-Leader reports this man, Blaec Lammers of Bolivar, Missouri, bought assault rifles and over 400 rounds of ammunition.

KYTV: “...his mother prompted the investigation. She called police yesterday worried about her son’s mental state and the public’s safety. ... Lammer’s mother says he had stopped taking medication.”

Reports suggest the plot might have been an attempt to mimic the July theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado. (VIDEO VIA ABC)

USA Today reports, Lammers told police after hearing about recent shootings in the news, he realized “...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...”  

Lammer was charged with first-degree assault, making a terrorist threat, and armed criminal action.
