A metro man was arrested police said he made threats on his Facebook page about killing people in Oklahoma City and San Antonio.

Roderick Robinson, 39, was taken into custody late Tuesday night. Police say they were notified about the threatening Facebook posts by the San Antonio Police Department.

In the posts, Robinson threatened to kill people on “The Strip” in San Antonio and he made a threat to kill people in OKC. Also in the post, Robinson compared his “plan” to Monday’s shooting massacre in Las Vegas.

Investigators initially thought Robinson was in San Antonio, but they later determined he was actually at an apartment complex in Warr Acres.

“Thanks to the San Antonio Police Department and cooperation with Warr Acres Police Department, out gang unit and our criminal intelligence unit,” said Officer Megan Morgan, Oklahoma City Police Department. “We were actually able to track that individual down to an apartment in Warr Acres where he was taken into custody.” 

Robinson was taken into custody without incident. He was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on one complaint of “terrorist hoax”. His bond was set at $5,000.
