Early Sunday, Santa Monica police received a call of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend. That led officers to inspect the car and find several weapons and a lot of ammunition as well as tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create a pipe bomb.

The car had Indiana plates. The man made comments that he was in town for the Pride event in West Hollywood this weekend. The source said authorities did not know of any connection between the gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning and the Santa Monica incident. The investigation has been taken over by the FBI. The source said the man appeared to be white.

This man had tannerite, so he was definitely up to no good. He also had a security badge. The FBI is now involved, but this sure looks like a second possible planned terrorist attack on a gay venue. They say this guy is white, which means nothing. Tens of thousands of people were expected to flood West Hollywood on Sunday for the annual LA Pride Parade. The festival celebrating the region’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community kicked off Friday with a musical lineup that featured more than 40 artists, headlined by pop stars Charli XCX and Carly Rae Jepsen. Held in West Hollywood Park, the festival hours are 2 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday and noon to 11 p.m. on Sunday. Security has been beefed up at the event over this. We are in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and ISIS has vowed attacks on Americans across our country. It looks like America has awoken to war within her borders. This is also a developing and breaking story.
