A Missouri man was arrested and is accused of buying semi-automatic 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, age 20, was nabbed after his mother alerted authorities.

The woman told police her son had bought weapons similar to those used by a gunman inside an Aurora, Colorado movie theater showing the premiere of the recent Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises.

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.

Lammers confessed during questioning, admitting that he had bought the firearms with the intention of shooting up the movie theater in Bolivar on Sunday.

The man 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.
