HART COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) - A Horse Cave man was arrested after Kentucky State Police received a call for threats of a public shooting.

Joshua Morrison, 30, was charged with second-degree terroristic threatening after police said he sent virtual messages regarding threats of a mass shooting of schools and churches in the Barren and Warren County areas.

According to narratives from police, Morrison allegedly sent a Facebook message to a woman telling her not go to church or school adding that he was also coming to Bowling Green to do a mass shooting also.

Troopers found Morrison and arrested him. He said he “wasn’t going to actually do it.”

He also told police that he knew what messages he sent and verified that the Facebook account the messages came from was his own.

Police also said that Morrison said “he was Jesus Christ and that he only sent the messages to help law enforcement prevent mass shootings.”

Morrison was arraigned Monday morning at 9 a.m.
