POMONA, Calif.  (KTLA) — A Pomona man has been arrested for allegedly making violent threats against local schools, the LAPD confirmed Monday.

24-year-old Kyle Bangayan was taken into custody around 11:15 a.m. Sunday at his parents’ home in the 1200 block of New Hampshire Avenue, in Hollywood.

The threats, which did not target specific schools but did reference the Connecticut school shooting from last Friday, were posted on Facebook, police said.

Authorities found nine firearms, including rifles, a shotgun and handguns, as well as ammunition, at Bangayan’s parents’ home.

KTLA 5’s Elizabeth Espinosa talked with residents in Hollywood who knew the suspect and his family.
