Default Boston Police Foil Potential Massacre at Pokemon World Championship

BOSTON ? Police said Sunday they thwarted what could have been a massacre at the Pokemon World Championship held here this weekend.

Boston police arrested James Austin Stumbo, 27, and Kevin Norton, 18, on Saturday ?because of threats of violence made over social media.? When police searched Stumbo and Norton?s vehicle parked in a garage several blocks from the Pokemon event, they found found a shotgun, AR-15 assault rifle, a hunting rifle, and 250 rounds of ammunition.

Stumbo and Norton are charged with several firearm charges including unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

?The BPD detectives did a great job in the stop and prevention of a potential tragedy," said Superintendent Paul Fitzgerald, commander of the police department's Bureau of Intelligence and Analysis.

Stumbo wasn?t shy about his arsenal or his alleged target. Stumbo posted a photo of the car and guns in a Facebook group entitled ?Mayhem Pokemon Crew.? The caption read:

?Kevin Norton and I are ready for Worlds Boston here we come!!!?

?Good luck!? wrote a Facebook user named Joey Faux.

?With killing the competition?? asked Norton.

?Haha yes,? replied Faux.

Stumbo and Norton were both invited to play in the U.S. masters division in Boston this weekend, according to the Pokemon World Championship website.
Absolutely sickening. Hope they get locked up for a good while.

The important thing is that no one was hurt.

They are both legal adults and Boston experienced an attack only a few years ago. They should get a pretty severe sentence if convicted.

Hope they're hit with the full force of the law. Scumbags.

I don't get what these guys expect when they advertise their plans on Twitter and Facebook.

New evidence of them threatening an official at the Pokemon tourney, on top of the infamous facebook post.

Hopefully now they can convict them on more than just posessing firearms without a permit.
