Scott A. Smith, 37, entered the 10 p.m. showing of 'The Dark Knight Rises' at Crocker Park Regal Cinemas with a bag full of ammo and knives, according to Westlake police.
Jeremiah Bullins, an off-duty Westlake police officer, noticed and searched Smith's bag. He found three knives in the bag, as well as a loaded 9 mm Glock handgun, two additional loaded magazines, and a fourth knife under his clothes. Each magazine had 17 rounds.
Police said Smith was the first person in the theater at the time of his arrest but up to 80 people would have been there 20 minutes later. He was sitting in the last row in a middle seat. This was a "tactical position," according to officers, his back to the wall and facing out
What if he was just afraid of copycats himself
A search warrant was executed at Smith's home late Monday. Officers found more weapons, a gas mask, tactical vest and more ammunition. Source
Come on man, they're not as common as you make them out to be. Tactical vests are quite expensive actually. What I find concerning, is that if this guy was indeed attempting to copy-cat the original killer, why didn't he bring the gas mask and tactical vest like the original killer and instead leave those items at his home? It seems fairly possible that this guy is the mystery second suspect we have all been talking about.
Oh.. that doesn't mean anything. Lots of people have gas masks and tactical vests.
