H8 mass shooting threat arrests

Three men in three different states have been arrested following tips that they were planning separate mass shootings, according to officials.

An arsenal of assault rifles and large knives, a stockpile of ammunition and even a gas mask.

New Middletown police say they arrested 20-year-old James Reardon, Jr., at his home Saturday in the Mahoning County village. After investigating Reardon's social media accounts, authorities found white nationalist and anti-Semitic propaganda throughout alongside multiple videos of either himself or others firing off guns.

Andy Lipkin, the executive vice-president of the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation, said the post was accompanied by a caption that read, "Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist Seamus O'Rearedon" - Seamus being a Gaelic version of Reardon's name. "I want a homeland for white people and I think every race should have a homeland for their own race".

WKBN-TV reported that Reardon's bond was set at $250,000 and he has been ordered to stay away from Jewish churches and organizations.

These arrests come several weeks after two mass shootings that took place within 24 hours in the United States claimed the lives of over 30 people.

He's accused of threatening to kill 100 people.

"He had a rifle and 400 rounds of ammunition. There's a lot of carnage [that] could've been caused", Chitwood said.

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

"This is a small wonderful community and this made my heart sink when I saw the video", D'Egidio told Fox 8 Cleveland. That's exactly what it was. Wix wrote that he already had a location in mind and wanted a high kill count.

It's unclear whether the man shooting the gun was Reardon or someone else. "He lost his job, he lost his girlfriend, he's depressed, he's got the ammunition and he wants to become known for being the most prolific killer in American history".

Wix was being held without bond Sunday at the Volusia County Branch Jail.

The alleged white nationalist who was arrested for making threats towards a Jewish community center in OH appeared in court and pleaded not guilty.

Authorities said in a statement that Wagshol was arrested on August 15 by Norwalk and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials and charged with four counts of Illegal Possession of Large Capacity Magazines.

"There were some historical facebook posts that indicated his interest in mass murder".

"That kicked off an intense investigation, a very rapidly evolving investigation, because of the way the world is", New Middletown Police Chief Vince D'Egidio told Youngstown ABC affiliate WYTV.
