MASS SHOOTING: Police Stops Threat at a Hotel in California

Police in Long Beach, California believe they prevented a disgruntled hotel worker from carrying out another mass shooting.

Cops arrested 37-year-old Rodolfo Montoya at his home in Huntington Beach where they say he kept several high-powered weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Police were tipped off by a co-worker of his at a Marriott hotel who said Montoya said he was going to shoot other workers and guests at the hotel. Police Chief Robert Luna says the threat was very serious and “Thank God that employee decided to bring that information forward.”

Montoya is charged with possession of assault weapons and making a criminal threat. Police say he has no criminal history that would have prevented him from purchasing these weapons. (Buzzfeed)

  • This guy wasn’t just talking. With an arsenal like that, he had to be serious.
