KERRVILLE, TX – A Kerrville Man has been arrested after planning to commit a mass shooting at a Wal-Mart.
The Kerr County Sheriff’s Office, FBI, and Texas DPS arrested 28-year-old Coleman Bevins. In an intercepted message and after talking to Bevins on the phone, Kerr County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Bevins was planning on attacking a Wal-Mart but did not specify which store.
Bevins was arrested on Friday and law enforcement readied a warrant to search his home.
Inside Bevins’ house, they found firearms, ammunition, concentrated THC, electronic evidence, and radical ideological paraphernalia including books and flags.
The Kerr County Sheriff, Larry Leitha said, “Our investigators did outstanding work in this case, and possibly saved many lives. The plot interrupted in this case is unthinkable. We appreciate the assistance of all our law enforcement partners, including the FBI, DPS, KPD, and Secret Service. We’d like to remind the public - if you see something, say something. The KCSO, working with other law enforcement professionals, will continue to stop threats to our community, and bring those responsible to prosecution.”
Coleman Bevins is still currently in jail.
