A Jefferson City man is now charged after referring to himself as “Your Next Mass Shooter” on a social media post.
Twenty six year old Brian Groner was arrested yesterday [Wednesday] at his home.
During an interview with authorities, Groner was reportedly “hostile” but admitted to “understanding the gravity of his statements on social media.”
He also told investigators he wanted others to view his Facebook post. He said he studied the Columbine shooting that killed 13 people in 1999. He told police he thought he could kill more than that.
He is being held in the Cole County Jail.
