A Michigan man was arrested after he threatened to travel to Atlanta and go on a killing spree at the main headquarters of CNN.
WGCL-TV obtained court documents and reported on Monday that the man was taken into custody by the FBI after making 22 calls to the network’s main building. Apparently, the man pestered the phone operators with taunts of “fake news,” but then he started to make more threatening comments like these:
“Fake news. I’m coming to gun you all down.”
“I’m smarter than you. More powerful than you. I have more guns than you. More manpower. Your cast is about to get gunned down in a matter of hours.”
“I am coming to Georgia right now to go to the CNN headquarters to f*cking gun every single last one of you.”
Investigators traced the call to the suburbs of Detroit and stopped the man before any mass shooting could take place.
