On Friday, police in Daytona Beach, Fla., arrested Tristan Scott Wix, 25, after he allegedly texted an ex-girlfriend about his plans to commit a mass shooting.

A hotel cook apparently upset over human resources issues has been arrested for allegedly planning a mass shooting of his coworkers and guests at a Marriott property in Long Beach, California, city police said Wednesday. They found several guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in his home. Montoya's arrest is the latest in a string of mass shooting threats after deadly shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

Police said they seized multiple firearms including an assault rifle, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and tactical gear from his home in Huntingdon Beach.

"Suspect Montoya had clear plans, intent and the means to carry out an act of violence that may have resulted in a mass casualty incident", Luna added in a press conference on Wednesday, according to the Times. "However, thanks to both the actions taken by the employee who reported this threat and the exceptional work of our police department, thankfully it was not".

During a news conference today, Luna turned and directly addressed Ahmed and said: 'Sir, you saved many lives, not only of your employees but any customers that may have been at the Marriott when this guy made a decision to show up and carry out his threat'.

A source previously said that Maddox never felt like he's Pitt's son because they never had a close relationship with each other. Maddox , who received the home, primary and secondary education, also studying the Korean language.

The FBI has been scouring the country in search of mass shooting threats following repeated reports of copycats - attempting to "engage in similar acts of violence" - in recent weeks. "A good 100 kills would be nice", one of the messages reportedly read.

On 8 August police in Nevada arrested Conor Climo, 23, and said he had bomb making materials at his Las Vegas home. Climo is reported to have told police that he belonged to a neo-Nazi group. Local and federal agencies have faced increased pressure to identify and arrest potential mass shooters before they can attack, but experts say that law enforcement officials need help from community members to do their jobs. His mother reportedly told the Federal Bureau of Investigation he owned a handgun, used cocaine and methamphetamine and was being treated for schizophrenia.

Montoya, who worked as a cook for the hotel, allegedly spoke to a fellow employee on Monday about the HR dispute and threatened 'that he was going to shoot up fellow employees and people coming into the hotel'.

It is unclear at this time whether Montoya has an attorney.

"Thank God that employee chose to bring that information forward", Luna added. He is now being held on $500,000 bail at the Long Beach City Jail.
