Man Allegedly Threatened Mass Murder At Walmart

Posted: Updated:

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WHOP)-- A man who allegedly threatened to commit mass murder at Walmart was arrested Friday night.

An arrest citation says 66-year old Robert Carl Palmer called ECC and stated he was going to Walmart “with two AK’s” and full magazines and that he would “create another mass murder.”

Palmer reportedly said he was angry about a phone call he placed to the Walmart service department where he had been disconnected.

Officers found Palmer at the Rodeway Inn and Palmer’s phone rang when the number that called ECC was dialed back.

Alcohol is listed as a factor in the incident on the report.

Palmer is charged with second-degree terroristic threatening.
