First, I will let you all come to terms with the fact that Kardashian and West have already been married for three years . On Monday, a deadly blast occurred at Manchester Arena that killed at least 22 people and left more than 59 injured.

During a Thursday afternoon press conference, a Sgt. Mercedes Fortune said Phoenix police will be updating security at the facility, including additional screening, as well as fewer accessible entrances to the building. That includes costume props, no matter what it is made out of.
The four-day entertainment and comic convention is being held at the Phoenix Convention Centre. Prop guns were allowed, but each was required to have the tip of its barrel painted orange. However, this did not seem to occur on Thursday, with the armed man slipping through into the convention while fully armed. This had lead to increased security checks and a ban being placed on all prop weapons for the remainder of the convention. He was jailed on suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, wearing body armor during the commission of a felony, resisting, and also for carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.
Police didn't identify the performer who allegedly was threatened but say the man arrested Thursday was Mathew Sterling. A witness told them Sterling sent them a Facebook message stating he was threatening to shoot officers and was heavily armed.
