A Michigan man described by his neighbors as a “doomsday prepper” set fire to his mobile home and fatally shot himself after going on a shooting spree at the trailer park where he lived.

State troopers were called Saturday night to Riverside Estates Mobile Home Park in Buchanan, where neighbors reported gunshots being fired at their trailer homes.

No one was injured by the hail of gunfire, but neighbors were forced to take cover in bathtubs and under furniture as bullets riddled the insides of their homes.

The man, later identified by as Ted Lanser, then fled to his own home and engaged troopers in a brief standoff.

He then set fire to the trailer, where he kept thousands of rounds of ammunition, and then shot himself to death.

The ammunition began exploding as the fire spread, and witnesses said they heard as many as 3,000 shells explode over an hour and a half.

Residents were evacuated as the ammunition exploded, and firefighters weren’t able to battle the blaze until the rounds stopped firing.

They found the man’s body inside, along with a dog that also died in the fire.

“A few days ago, he started acting really weird, accused my husband of being a cop, said that he’s heard helicopter over his house and stuff which none of us have heard,” said neighbor Melissa Dobrzykowski. “The only thing I know about this guy is that he is a doomsday ‘prepper.’”

Neighbors said Lanser regularly ordered 300 rounds of ammunition, and his Facebook profile shows he was interested in hunting, firearms, and motorcycle riding.

“He said if he was going to go out, he was going to go out big,” said neighbor Christopher Chrissebring. “Well, I’d say he went out big.”

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

Published

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.

Here’s how Missouri’s GOP governor ignored warnings — and caught COVID himself

Published

on

Missouri Governor Mike Parson is one of the nation’s leading Donald Trump acolytes, right down to refusing to issue a statewide mandate to wear what he has termed “danged masks.”

Like Trump, Parson and his wife Teresa both contracted the COVID-19 virus, thankfully recovering, but only to emerge unbowed as if there was nothing to see here. He won’t consider mask mandates to this day, even as Missouri remains one of the top-spiking states in the nation.

Now, Parson’s Trump-worship has taken an even more pathetic turn. Like the boss man, it turns out he wasn’t about to be deterred by some snowflake concerns over a potential super-spreader setting.
