Authorities say an Indiana man who had 47 guns and ammunition in his home has been arrested after allegedly threatening to kill people at an elementary school near his home.
Cedar Lake police were called to the home of 60-year-old Von I. Meyer early Friday after he allegedly threatened to set his wife on fire. A police statement says Mr. Meyer also said he would enter Jane Ball Elementary School and “kill as many people as he could.”
Authorities found 47 guns and ammunition worth over $100,000.
Prosecutors filed felony intimidation charges against Mr. Meyer on Saturday, one day after the massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. He is being held without bond.
Cedar Lake is about 70 km southeast of Chicago.
