WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. — An Altamonte Springs man was arrested after police said he made threats to bring a gun to a local school and “shoot anyone that got in his way.”
Winter Springs police arrested 37-year-old David Gomez on charges of making threats to conduct a mass shooting, after they said he sent several threatening messages to family members.
According to a police report, Gomez had sent several text messages and made posts on social media stating, “You go to Winter Springs high school I will come pull you out of school tomorrow” and “I’m going with a gun.”
Investigators said that when they went to the home where Gomez was staying, a woman there told them he was on his way to the police department to turn himself in.
Police said they later found Gomez at a home in Altamonte Springs, where he was taken into custody.
Gomez was booked into the Seminole County jail and held on $15,000 bond.
