Police in Connecticut, Florida, and Ohio arrested three men in the span of two days, potentially preventing three separate but unrelated mass shooting plots.
According to USA Today, all three men reportedly posted online threats or sent threatening text messages, leading citizens to tip off local police.
In Connecticut, police arrested 22-year-old Brandon Wagshol after joint investigation by Norwalk police and the FBI.
In Florida, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office arrested 25-year-old Tristan Scott Wix and charged him with making threats to commit a mass shooting.
In Ohio, police arrested 20-year-old James Reardon after the FBI investigated a social media post in which he reportedly identified himself as the gunman in a mass shooting at a Jewish community center—an event that hadn't yet taken place.
