A suburban Denver man has been arrested after accusations that he threatened to shoot children, kill people on Halloween and kill President Barack Obama.
Mitchell Kenneth Kusick, of Westminster, was being held Tuesday on a federal charge of threats against a president. He identified himself as a student at Colorado Mesa University in western Colorado.
According to KUSA-TV in Denver, Jefferson County court records show he told his therapist about wanting to shoot students at a trick-or-treat event at Standley Lake High School.
Federal court records say Kusick took a shotgun from his aunt's house, tried to buy ammunition, then told his therapist about his plan.
The therapist called police, and Kusick went to a hospital, where he was placed on a mental health hold.
