Adelle Platon / July 27, 2012

Not even a week after the Colorado tragedy that left 12 killed and 58 injured, a copycat shooter was arrested after attempting to disrupt a screening of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in Prince George County, Maryland. Authorities believed it would have patterned the mass shooting.

According to ABC7 News, the suspect, who has yet to be identified, was arrested in Crofton Thursday night. According to officials, the man was facing termination from his job in Prince George’s County.

Police 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.
