A Yale graduate has been arrested after posting a blog threatening to kill children, according to police.
A California man accused of making terroristic threats to kill children has been arrested after Bristol police contacted California authorities.
Authorities in California have identified the suspect as Eric Yee, a Yale graduate, according to NBC Los Angeles.
According to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Department, the person posted on a blog that they were watching kids and did not mind murdering them.
Bristol police said the post was made on an ESPN blog or chat site where people discuss sports. ESPN contacted Bristol police about the post and the department traced the post to California.
According to police, the man has no formal connection to ESPN or to the city of Bristol and investigators do not know why the man would make a threatening post on the sports site.
The blogger also posted that it would be like the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting, in which 12 people were killed and 58 others were wounded.
The post led police to a residence in Valencia, California, which overlooks Santa Clarita Elementary School and Arroyo Seco Junior High, according to the sheriff’s department.
Santa Clarita Valley Detectives searched the residence and said they found several firearms.
The man was taken into custody and booked at Santa Clarita Valley station.
Detectives in California are in contact with Bristol police and Yale University police to determine if there are any other suspects.
Police said they will not release the suspect’s name until they can verify that there are no other suspects.
