Around The World(FOX44) USA- In the wake of the killing spree at an Aurora Colorado movie theater today police have been called in at theaters across the country after a threatening phone message was left on an answering machine at the Carmike Cinemas headquarters in Georgia overnight.

The caller said there were bombs placed throughout the theaters all over the United States.

At this point no explosives were found and police have not commented on a possible connection between the threats and an arrest made last night when a 23 year old man tried to carry a loaded 9mm pistol into a Carmike Cinema in Columbus, Georgia.

More ammunition was found inside his car.

Investigators believe an angry employee could be responsible for the bomb threat.

Their lawyer plans to appeal and activists have threatened big protests in the near future.
