Uncle of Missouri Man Charged in Connection to Potential 'Twilight' Shooting Says 'He's a Good Kid' (EXCLUSIVE)
Blaec Lammers, the man who was charged with plotting to open fire on a Bolivar, MO movie theater during a screening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 on Sunday, is "a good kid", his uncle John Lammers told Celebuzz.
The 20-year-old admitted to authorities that he had purchased 400 rounds of ammunition and firearms at his local Walmart and had "intentions of shooting up the movie theater in Bolivar," according to the probable cause statement released by Polk County authorities.
"I just heard about it, my brother [Blaec's father] just called me," he added.
John, who was beside himself after hearing the devastating news, was understandably in disbelief.
"We can't believe it, we're pretty upset."
According to a statement from Bolivar police, Blaec's mother had contacted local police with concerns that her son had purchased weapons and might have been planning a movie theater shooting.
On Friday morning, after agreeing to be interviewed at the police station, Lammers told officials that he had purchased two assault rifles for hunting. He then commented on the recent shootings that had been in the news.
Police Sgt. Shawn Curtis tells Celebuzz that the bond has been set at $500,000.
