(CBS) — Police say they stopped an international mass shooting spree with links to a woman from Geneva, Ill.
23-year-old Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath from Geneva and a Canadian man have been charged with plotting a mass shooting. Police say they planned to shoot up a mall in Nova Scotia and then take their own lives.
Souvannarath took a flight from Chicago to Canada and was arrested at the Halifax Airport Friday. Souvannarath, 20-year-old Randall Steven Shepherd of Timberlea, a suburb of Halifax, were each charged with conspiracy to commit murder. A third person was arrested but was released without being charged, police said.
