A California man has been arrested for plotting a whole mass shooting.
Dallas Marsh, 37, was taken into custody by SWAT officers at a Super 8 motel in Chico, CA after detectives obtained evidence of his plot to conduct a mass shooting.
According to the NY Post, the evidence that implicated him included unspecified information that he had made “criminal threats to kill specific individuals, specified law enforcement officers, and was preparing to commit a ‘Las Vegas style’ mass shooting with a specified deadline,” said the statement from the Chico Police Department. As of right now, there is no known motive for the attack.
Authorities did not specify when Marsh planned to carry out his plan, but the 5th year anniversary of the Las Vegas Mass Shooting is this Saturday. The shooting claimed the lives of 60 people and injured more than 400 when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock open fired at the Route 91 Harvest music festival from a hotel on the Vegas Strip on Oct. 1, 2017.
According to the Chico police, after his arrest, Marsh threatened to kill additional officers and their families, and he battered an officer with a table during an interview. He’s facing multiple charges including making criminal threats and battery on a peace officer. He is currently being held without bond.
It is also believed that Marsh is a U.S. Army Veteran, but that has yet to be confirmed.
