Suspect with Arsenal Arrested at L.A. Gay Pride.

Quote:
Authorities in Santa Monica found possible explosives as well as assault rifles and ammunition Sunday in the car of a man who told them he was in town for the L.A. Pride festival in West Hollywood, a law enforcement source said.

Early Sunday, Santa Monica police received a call of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend. That led officers to inspect the car and find several weapons and a lot of ammunition as well as tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create a pipe bomb.

The car had Indiana plates. The man made comments that he was in town for the Pride event in West Hollywood this weekend. The source said authorities did not know of any connection between the gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning and the Santa Monica incident. The investigation has been taken over by the FBI. The source said the man appeared to be white.

A city official in West Hollywood also confirmed the arrest and stressed that officials were beefing up security at the gay pride event.

"They found him with weapons that were very disconcerting," said the source, adding officials are "taking the appropriate safety precautions."

The parade comes hours after the attack at the Orlando club that killed 50 people. At least 53 were injured in the deadliest shooting in modern American history after a gunman took hostages. The gunman has been identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, a U.S. law enforcement official said.

One source in West Hollywood said there was discussion of calling off the parade but that officials decided to go forward, with heavy security including undercover officers in the crowd.

The sources spoke to The Times on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment publicly.

West Hollywood City Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath said in a statement that Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials are stepping up security efforts around Sunday’s parade and other festivities. But she said officials do not believe there is any threat around Sunday’s activities.

“We are hearing absolutely devastating news reports from Orlando this morning,” she said. “Gun violence on the LGBTQ family during Pride Month makes me sick. The deadliest mass shooting in America happened to LGBTQ people on Latin night. While we mourn this heartbreaking loss, we must also rededicate ourselves to the fight for full equality for all people. No one is equal unless everyone is equal.”

A reporter for ProPublica tweeted out a Sheriff’s Department bulletin detailing the arrest.

Times Staff Writers Zahira Torres and Frank Shyong contributed to this report.

tbh I wouldn't mind seeing more men with firearms (and leather boots) at pride.

Re: Suspect with Arsenal Arrested at L.A. Gay Pride.

I dunno why the "appeared to be white" mad emr chuckle a bit but I'm just glad that whatever sketchy thing this guy planned to do was stopped beforehand. Hopefully we get more information.
Personally, and ofc this comes from a total amateur as I am not a cop ot anything, that guy in Orlando seemed like a lone wolf and this could be just two hateful people showing their hateful nature one with a much much more disastrous outcome but who fucking knows. Mankind is rotten anyway.

Not a big deal. Just let it get buried. You're not in any trouble.

Yet.

Re: Suspect with Arsenal Arrested at L.A. Gay Pride.

this crazy SOB comes from my neck of the woods.....this is why we have the wright to bare arms.....they will never take that from us due to this kind of shit... we DON'T feel safe anymore...at home, gas station, grocery store or even at a stop light. You don't know what is on other peoples mind or what mental state that they are in. I will NEVER give up guns due to this because things have to change around the world so we feel SAFE again but sadly I don't see that happening anytime soon. What a web we have woven. Sorry so long had some steam to get ride of..

It's a pity that even if you have your gun attached to your body 24/7, in most situations where you are the first target, you don't have a hope of pulling and using it to defend yourself before you've had a chance to assess the situation.

Sure, in some situations you will have some forewarning... but the person intent to kill will have that weapon already at hand and pointed at you.
