>>FBI Arrests Ohio Teen After Social Media Threats

In light of recent mass shootings, authorities are taking threats very seriously. Social media posts from February led to an arrest of 18-year-old Justin Olsen near Youngstown.

The man was arrested last Wednesday and charged for making online threats against federal agents. He was arrested at his father's home, which was filled with guns and a huge stockpile of ammunition.

Agents seized 15 rifles, 10 semi-automatic pistols and roughly 10,000 rounds of ammunition from the home where Olsen lives with his father during the arrest.

>>Dayton Shooter’s Intent Still Unknown

During a press conference yesterday Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl provided a detailed report on what the shooter did the night of the shooting.
