FBI: Man spent months planning attack

Kurt William Havelock was found guilty in June of six counts of mailing threatening communications.

Authorities said Havelock bought an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and 200 rounds of ammunition from the Scottsdale Gun Club on Jan. 30.

Court documents said Havelock wanted to kill people at the Feb. 3 Super Bowl and was armed when he reached a parking lot near University of Phoenix Stadium where pre-game activities were happening.

According to court documents, he also mailed an eight-page manifesto to various media outlets saying he would reciprocate for having his dreams destroyed.

Havelock didn't attack anyone, however.

Havelock instead called his parents, who persuaded him to turn himself in to police.
