US man threatens shooting over lack of masks in store
Miami: Police in Florida have arrested a man who threatened to go on a shooting rampage in his local supermarket because he thought too few shoppers were wearing protective masks against the coronavirus.
Robert Kovner, 62, was arrested after he posted on Facebook that he would "empty every clip I own" in his local Publix supermarket because not enough of the customers were wearing protective face coverings, police said.
Police in Sebring, some 85 miles (135 kilometers) south of Orlando, said that "these are stressful times, but there is no excuse for making threats like this."
"It's not a joke. It's not just a bad day. It's a crime. We will ALWAYS take them seriously and you will go to jail," they said. - AFP
