Police: Indiana man threatened killings at elementary school



Every whacko wants his stab at fame. Watch for this to happen more and more.

A Cedar Lake, Ind. man who police said had 47 guns and ammunition hidden in his home was arrested after threatening to set his wife on fire and "kill as many people as he could" at an elementary school near his home Friday, police said.

Early Friday morning, police were called to the home of Von I. Meyer, 60, in 9300 block of West 133rd Avenue, after it was reported that he threatened to set his wife on fire after she fell asleep, according to a statement from Cedar Lake police.

Meyer also said he was going to enter the Jane Ball Elementary School – less than 1,000 feet from his home – and "kill as many people as he could before police could stop him," the statement said.


Hidden in his 2-story, "historic" home, authorities found 47 guns and ammunition with an estimated value of over $100,000, the statement said. Many of the guns seized during the search were collector's items, the statement said.
