PHOENIX - Police have arrested an
Arizona man who filmed his 16-year-old nephew walking city streets
dressed in a sheet and carrying a fake grenade launcher in an apparent
bid to test police responses after the Denver theater shooting,
authorities said on Wednesday.
Michael David Turley, 39, was arrested on Monday over the making of
the video, in which an unidentified narrator says he aims to “find out
how safe I really am” in Phoenix following the July Denver shooting that
killed 12 people and wounded 58.
The video depicts a man with a fake grenade launcher walking around a
Phoenix intersection in what appears to be a blue sheet with dark
material covering his head and face. The filmmaker said it took 15
minutes for police to respond.
The amateur video, filmed eight days after the Colorado shooting at a
screening of a Batman movie, was broadcast
