Florida Man Who Claimed ‘Mass Murder Coming Soon’ Has Been Arrested
A Florida man was arrested after sending out ominous threats of mass murder, recent reports reveal.
NBC affiliate WPTV reported that 33-year-old Lowell Thomas Schoonmaker was accused of making terroristic threats on Twitch, claiming that “mass murder” was soon to come.
A probable cause affidavit said another Twitch user reported Schoonmaker to the FBI after he wrote comments like “Mass murder coming soon” and “Today I’m going to kill 20 people have a nice day.”
After tracing the IP address from the suspect’s account, detectives linked it to Schoonmaker’s home in Boca Raton.
Schoonmaker told law enforcement that he didn’t mean those comments and only did it out of depression and being drunk.
He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a charge of written threat to conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism.
