SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — A California man is being held on $2 million bail after authorities say he wrote in an ESPN online chat room that he was watching kids and wouldn't mind killing them.
The man is in his early 20s and remains in custody Tuesday after he was arrested for investigation of making terrorist threats. His name was not immediately released.
Lt. Donn Watson, of the Bristol, Conn., Police Department says an ESPN employee called authorities Sept. 13 to report the man's comments. Police linked the posting to the man's home in northern Los Angeles County, where he was arrested.
Los Angeles sheriff's investigators say they found several guns in the man's house, which overlooks two schools. Authorities say the man's posts referenced the shooting at a Colorado movie theater in July.
