LONG BEACH, Calif. (CNS) -- A 35-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly made threats to shoot his co-workers at their place of work in Long Beach, and a cache of firearms was recovered at his home, authorities said.
Officers were dispatched Saturday to the 3500 block of East Broadway regarding a report of criminal threats, according to the Long Beach Police Department. They contacted a man who told them a co-worker brought firearms on Jan. 4 and made threats to shoot his co-workers.
