(CBN) – With the nation still reeling from the two mass shootings that claimed 31 lives and wounded 42 others over last weekend, there’s now word that another mass murder plot was recently foiled by a Texas grandmother. Federal authorities in Lubbock, Texas, have charged William Patrick Williams, 19, with making false statements to a federally licensed firearms dealer. According to prosecutors, Williams was allegedly plotting a mass shooting and gave the gun dealer an old address.
According to court documents, Williams’ grandmother had contacted authorities when he called and told her he was homicidal and suicidal. He had purchased an AK-47 and said he “planned to ‘shoot up’ a local hotel and then commit suicide by cop.” The grandmother convinced her grandson to let her take him to a local hospital. He was arrested last Thursday when he left the hospital. He remains in the Lubbock County Jail. READ MORE
