Patrick has a few anger issues, and he was trying to work through those issues by allegedly planning to shoot up Philadelphia’s Temple University.
Police say a potential mass shooting at Temple has been averted thanks to the folks at the Walmart in Tullytown, Bucks County.
Investigators say as 29-year-old Patrick Buhler bought five boxes of bullets commonly used in an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle Wednesday at the store, Buhler made concerning statements about Temple to two different customers.
“He was making threats that were not only concerning but ended up being criminal,” said [Bucks County D.A. Matthew] Weintraub.
Buhler said he knew who patrolled the campus, what their response time was and that he bought the ammo because he knew cops wear bullet proof vests. He even said you will see something on the news in the next couple of days and weeks. Weintraub says the comments did not sit well with Walmart’s staff.
Thee irony here is Temple University is located in one of the worst neighborhoods in the city. Everyone in the surrounding area has guns, and most of them would love to be the one to stop a pasty white boy who’s shooting up their ‘hood.
It may surprise you to know Patty has been charged with weapons offenses prior to this incident. So, you know, he’s a model citizen.
