Police Foil "mass shooting" plot at the Pokemon World Championships


Police have foilded a mass shooting plot at  last weekend's Pokemon World Championships after two men, who will remain unnamed in this article, boasted on social media about a "killing competition" after sharing a picture of a 12-gauge shotgun and an AR-15 rifle on their car.

Both men had been invited as to compete in the "masters division" of the contest, which offers of over $500,000 in prizes over the weekend. 

After Private sector security staff had found the below picture in a facebook post, in which the comments reference a "killing the competition"had alerted intelligence officials and an investigation was launched. Hours later both men were stopped while attempting to enter the Hynes Convention Center, the center which hosted the event, a day before the event was due to start.

Upon searching the pair's car, the police found a Remington Shotgun, a DPM5 Model Rifle, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and a hunting knife. Neither of the two men had a licence to carry a weapon. 

Both men were arrested under several firearm related crimes, including illegal possession of firearms, illegal possession of ammunition. On Saturday Boston Police's Analysis Commander Supt. Paul Fitzgerald had this to say.

'The relationship between police and private sector security is important in both our community policing philosophy, as well as our counter-terrorism strategy."

Thankfully this plot has been foiled by police, as otherwise a much more tragic event would have occurred last weekend.
