A week after the massacre that killed 12 people and injured over 50 in Aurora, Colo., there is still an uneasy feeling among many movie-goers. Reportedly, a Maryland man calling himself ‘joker‘ allegedly made threats earlier this week wearing a shirt that said “Guns Don’t Kill People. I Do.”

Police and ATF officers searched Neil Edwin Prescott’s home in Crofton, Md. and found numerous guns and ammunition. NBC Washington reports:

Law enforcement sources told News4 that Prescott made a more than one phone call Monday to a coworker, in which he made threats toward his employer — a subcontractor for Pitney Bowes– which was ready to fire him. Prescott was upset about prospect of losing his job and he told his coworker, “I’m gonna load my guns and blow everybody up,” according to a search warrant.

Officials said in a press conference on Thursday that this was a significant threat averted.
