NEW YORK – (VINnews) – A Long Island man has been arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot people at a local children’s camp over a complaint of social distancing, authorities say.
The suspect, Nicola Pelle, 58, of Inwood, called police Monday night to report a rape at Long Island’s Yeshiva Ketana Children’s Camp, according to Nassau County Police. While police were on the way, Pelle called again and threatened to get a gun and shoot people in the camp if police did not arrive, Nassau County police allege.
He was detained without incident. Later, officers apparently found him in possession of a valid Nassau County pistol permit, five pistols and rifles and shotguns, including two assault weapons. All the weapons were seized as evidence, police said.
Pelle was charged with making a terrorist threat, criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal possession of a firearm. He is expected to be arraigned in Mineola court later Tuesday.
