An elderly woman living in the town of Lubbock, Texas, helped stop another massacre by stopping an attack her 19-year-old grandson, William Patrick Williams, planned to carry out. This was announced by FBI sources and the District Attorney's Office, Nealy Cox, after the arrest of the minor occurred this Friday.

According to an official statement on July 13, Williams told his grandmother that he had acquired an AK47 assault rifle and was planning to carry out a massacre. For this, she had bought ammunition and even rented a hotel room from where she planned to "shoot" her targets and then kill herself in a "police suicide".

When the old woman found out about her grandson's plans, she managed to persuade him not to carry out his mission and convinced him to go to a hospital to seek professional help.

While hospitalized, Williams gave the local police permission to search his hotel room where they found his weapons placed on the bed, 17 full cartridges, several knives, as well as assault clothing that included a black raincoat, commando pants and a shirt that read 'Let' Em Come '.

"This is a tragedy that has been prevented," prosecutor Cox said in statements reproduced by CNN. "I want to acknowledge the defendant's grandmother who has saved lives by disrupting this plan, as well as the Lubbock police and federal agents who investigated the illegal acquisition of the weapon."

The young man now faces charges for making false testimonies to an arms merchant, because to acquire the rifle he lied about his address. Such an offense could put you up to 5 years in federal prison.
