Crazy Columbine guy:
Wants to Know has learned a Colorado man is in federal custody after plotting to kill President Barack Obama and kill children on Halloween night in Westminster.
Sources tell 9Wants to Know Mitchell Kusick’s plan involved stealing a family member’s shotgun and using it to shoot children on Halloween and assassinate the president in Colorado.
Officials do not know when he wanted to kill the president.
The restraining order filed in Jefferson county court says Kusick “stole a shotgun from his aunt’s house, hid the weapon, attempted to purchase ammunition for the gun” and then told his therapist about his plan.
The court paperwork goes on to say Kusick confessed to law enforcement about “his intent to shoot children at Standley Lake High School during a trick-or-treat event.” It also says Kusick talked to law enforcement while he was admitted to Lutheran Hospital and figured he would “engage police in a gun battle” after the shooting at the school.
The paperwork says he is charged with”interference for threatening to shoot children in Jeffco Schools.”
Jefferson County School District filed a restraining order against Kusick Nov. 9.
Jeffco Public Schools released the following statement in regards to Kusick:
Working with law enforcement, Jeffco Schools learned of a man who was allegedly threatening students at Standley Lake High School’s Trick or Treat Street event. Police acted quickly to take the man into custody before the event. At no time were children attending the event in any danger from the suspect because he was already in police custody. We appreciate the swift response from law enforcement and Jeffco district security which helped keep our students safe.
