Von I. Meyer, a Cedar Lake, Ind., resident, who was equipped with an arsenal of 47 guns, was arrested on Friday after he threatened to kill children at a local elementary school. Von I. Meyer had also threatened his wife:
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 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.
This incident comes on the heels of Adam Lanza’s shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Friday, that left 26 dead, including 20 children and six teachers. This also comes on the heels of the arrest of an Oklahoma man, Sammie Eaglebear Chavez, planning a school shooting. This also comes as a man fired 50 shots outside a mall in Newport Beach, Calif. The suspect is in custody.
