WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita police say a 28-year-old man is jailed on suspicion of making a terroristic threat after several people reported a threatening post on Facebook.

Police say the man was arrested at a business Monday morning.

Officer Charley Davidson says Sedgwick County 911 dispatchers started getting calls Sunday night from people concerned about the post that includes threats from a person who sounded suicidal.

Davidson said the threat didn’t mention a specific target.

The post included a picture of a large rifle and bullets. When the suspect was arrested, he had a BB gun with him.
