Power Rangers star targeted in murder plot at Phoenix Comic Con

Original ‘Power Rangers’ star Jason David Frank has had a bit of a close shave, as a lone gunman headed to Phoenix Comic Con with the intention of killing him.

A heavily-armed man – identified as 31-year-old Matthew Sterling – arrived at the convention on Thursday claiming to be ‘The Punisher’… with a plan to kill numerous ‘bad’ cops as well as the original Green Ranger, who was appearing at the comic con.

Thankfully, he was picked up by police before anyone was hurt.

According to a police statement, the would-be-attacker has since been charged with attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault, wearing body armour during the commission of a felony, resisting arrest, and carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.

And it sounds like he was packing quite an arsenal.

Court records reveal that Matthew Sterling was carrying two 45-caliber handguns, a .454-caliber handgun, a 12-gauge shotgun, a combat knife, pepper spray, and throwing stars at the time of his arrest.
