Local man jailed after threats to go on Lincoln killing spree
A man threatened to carry out mass shootings after going berserk in his grandmother's home, Lincoln Crown Court was told.
Grant Mizon smashed ornaments inside the house in Lilac Close in the Birchwood area of Lincoln and then rang NHS Direct asking for help.
James Cleary, prosecuting, said Mizon warned he would either kill himself or go on a shooting spree aiming to kill as many people as he could.
Mizon added "I'll go on a killing spree. I'll kill about 16 people. I'll kill a few cops, a few babies and a few children."

Mizon was challenged by his 76 year old grandmother but responded by grabbing a knife and threatening her.
A care worker who was visiting the property tried to disarm him but was also threatened.
Police arrested him at the scene but after being cautioned he told officers: "If you think that was bad when I get out I'm going to cause carnage."
Mizon, 26, of no fixed address, admitted a charge of affray arising out of the incident on 24 May 2012. He also admitted failing to answer bail.
He was jailed for two years.
Alistair Munt, defending, said Mizon suffered from mental health problems and was trying to draw attention to his own distress rather than cause harm to other people.
"This was a cry for help. He was at his wit's end.
"He was homeless. He had no money and no address.
"He sorely needs psychiatric treatment."
