Mother charged after 14-year-old son allegedly stockpiled weapons for school shooting

The mother of a 14-year-old who police say planned to shoot multiple classmates at his Pennsylvania high school was charged on Monday in connection to the foiled plot, authorities said.

Lenora Ann Hendrix, of Markleysburg, Pennsylvania, was charged with knowingly and intentionally delivering or providing a firearm to a minor, according to ABC affiliate WTAE, after her son threatened to carry out a mass shooting at Uniontown High School last month.

The teen, who wasn’t indentified, was taken into police custody on Jan. 25, just days after mass shootings at high schools in Kentucky and Texas. A witness reported that she overheard the suspect saying he would kill four classmates he disliked, officials said.

Man charged for allegedly threatening a mass shooting at “fake news” CNN

A man was charged in federal court on Friday after allegedly threatening a mass shooting at the Atlanta, GA, headquarters of CNN, which he complained was “fake news.”

As part of his broader effort to undermine trust in the news media, President Donald Trump has frequently singled out CNN for opprobrium, attacking the network dozens of times during his presidential campaign and first year in office and often asserting that the network and its reporters propagate “fake news.” In July, after the president tweeted a video of himself body-slamming a man who had a CNN logo superimposed on his head, the network warned that he was “encourag[ing] violence against reporters.”

Brandon Griesemer, a 19-year-old from Michigan, apparently channeled the president’s attacks on CNN. He made nearly two dozen phone calls to the network earlier this month, four of which included threats,

Steelers-Jaguars Playoffs Game: Man Allegedly Threatened Mass Shooting and Suicide in Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field

A Texas man allegedly threatened to unleash a mass shooting at Sunday’s NFL playoff game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Jacksonville Jaguars and then kill himself, authorities said.

Yuttana Choochongkol, 30, sent threats to the director of security at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field as well as a local TV station there ahead of Sunday’s game, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by KSAT.

In a message to local station KDKA, Choochongkol allegedly said he was ready to kill Steelers players and fans before his own death.

“This Sunday’s playoff game in Pittsburgh is going to be like no other. Why? Because it’s going to be my last day on this pathetic planet,” he wrote, according to the affidavit.

Sarah Palin sues New York Times for allegedly linking her to mass shooting from 2011

Former vice-presidential nominee and Alaska governor Sarah Palin is accusing The New York Times of defamation over an editorial that linked one of her political action committee ads to the mass shooting that severely wounded then-Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

In the lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court Tuesday, Palin’s lawyers say the Times “violated the law and its own policies” when it accused her of inciting the 2011 attack that killed six people.
