Kyle Bangayan, 24, of Pomona, was arrested in connection with a Facebook post in which he allegedly threatened shootings at multiple elementary schools in his area. Kyle Bangayan was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats and is being held on $500,000 bail. This comes on the heels of Adam Lanza’s shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, that claimed 26 lives, including 20 kids.
Los Angeles police officers and FBI agents seized ammunition and nine guns from the parents’ home, including rifles, a shotgun and multiple handguns, the LAPD said. Bangayan’s Pomona home was searched, but “no related evidence” or weapons were found, authorities said.
The LAPD said the threats were not specific to a school but did reference a deadly shooting in Newtown, Conn., Friday in which a gunman killed 20 children and six adults. Bangayan’s alleged threat referenced “kindergarten and elementary school kids,” sources said. Source
There will be zero tolerance for threats of this nature and anyone who makes a threat is quite capable of carrying out that threat. Kyle Bangayan and Von I. Meyer, who threatened to go on a shooting rampage at Jane Ball Elementary School in Cedar Lake, Ind., deserve to be locked away for a long time.
