In the last few hours, it was learned that a man in the state of Arizona, in the United States, had tried to kill a minority at a concert by the Puerto Rican singer Bad Bunny to generate “a race war” before the November presidential elections, according to federal prosecutors reported.

The man, identified as Mark Adams Prieto, 58, was formally charged in the last few hours, almost a month after his arrest, for the alleged plot in which he planned to shoot and kill African-American people however he could during a concert of the interpreter of ‘Perro negro’.

According to an affidavit that NBC News was able to access, the subject was discovered because a source he had hired to help in the shooting notified agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

“Prieto believes that martial law will be implemented shortly after the 2024 elections and that a mass shooting should occur first,” the source explained to the FBI in Phoenix.

Prieto confessed, in the sworn statement, that he was ready “to kill a group of people. The reason I say Atlanta. Because? Why is Georgia now such an improved state? When he was growing up, that was one of the most conservative states in the country. Why isn’t it like that now?”

The suspect added that: “Because as crime got worse in Los Angeles, St. Louis and all these other cities, all the black people moved out of those places and moved to Atlanta. That’s why it’s not so good anymore. And they’ve been there for a couple of years.”

Mark explained that the reason he chose a Bad Bunny concert as the center of the massacre is because he believes it is the place where the most black people would gather.

The informant told the FBI that Prieto told him that the idea was to infiltrate the crowd without being seen and counterattack now and “every white guy will be the enemy throughout the country.”

Prieto was charged with possession of an unregistered firearm, trafficking in firearms and transferring a firearm for use in a hate crime. If convicted, he could face up to 40 years in prison.

Mark was arrested on May 14 and admitted to FBI agents that he had tried to carry out a mass shooting at the Puerto Rican concert, however, at that moment he told them that: “he had no intention of going ahead with the attack.” .
