As if the world wasn't a scary enough place already, word comes today that a Crofton man was planning an Aurora-style shooting spree here in Maryland.
ABC News has this report:
"The suspect, identified as Neil Edwin Prescott . . . was being dismissed from his job [at Pitney Bowes]. He made threatening statements to his supervisor at least twice on Monday, police said. Prescott had an arsenal of about 25 firearms at his residence, including semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and handguns, according to a police affidavit. Police said he also had high powered scopes and magazines and thousands of rounds of ammunition in '40 large steel boxes.' He was quoted as telling his employer, 'I am a joker, I'm going to load my guns and blow everybody up,' police said."
Prescott is currently under psychiatric evaluation at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis.
