PHOENIX (AP) A man accused of planning a massacre at this year's Super Bowl was convicted Wednesday of federal charges.
Kurt Havelock faced six counts of mailing threatening communications in U.S. District Court in Phoenix.
According to court records, Havelock bought an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and 200 rounds of ammunition from the Scottsdale Gun Club on Jan. 30. The documents say Havelock wanted to kill people at the Feb. 3 Super Bowl in Glendale.
However, Havelock had a change of heart. He called his parents, and they persuaded him to turn himself in to Tempe police.
