FILE - This undated file photo released by the Long Beach, Calif., Police Department shows weapons and ammunition seized from a cook at a Los Angeles-area hotel who allegedly threatened a mass shooting. Rodolfo Montoya was arrested Tuesday, Aug. 20, a day after allegedly telling a co-worker at the Long Beach Marriott he planned to shoot fellow workers and others. Experts say media coverage of the shootings makes the public more prone to inform on worrisome relatives or neighbors in an attempt to thwart more shootings. Following the high-profile shootings in California and Texas and Ohio, tips to the FBI rose by about 15,000 each week. (Long Beach Police Department via AP, File)

This photo provided by the Virginia Department of Corrections shows Lee Boyd Malvo. As a teenager, Malvo terrorized the Washington region in 2002 as one-half of a sniper team. Now he’s at the center of a case the Supreme Court will hear this fall. But the justices’ eventual ruling probably will mean less for him than for a dozen other inmates also sentenced to life without parole for murders they committed as teens. At issue is whether Malvo should be resentenced in Virginia in light of rulings restricting life-without-parole sentences for crimes by juveniles. (Virginia Department of Corrections via AP)
