Man arrested in Chico for allegedly planning a mass shooting

A 37-year-old man was arrested in Chico on Sunday on suspicion of threatening to kill police officers and planning a “Las Vegas-style” mass shooting, authorities said.

The Chico Police Department SWAT team took Dallas Marsh into custody around 9 a.m. at a Super 8 motel where he was staying.

Authorities obtained an arrest warrant after learning that Marsh allegedly “made criminal threats to kill certain individuals and certain law enforcement officers and was preparing to commit a Las Vegas-style mass shooting by a deadline,” the department said in a statement.

Fifty-eight people were killed and hundreds injured in Las Vegas in 2017 when a gunman opened fire from a nearby hotel at the Route 91 Harvest music festival. The attack was the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

It’s not clear how authorities were alerted to Marsh’s alleged conspiracy and how long they knew about it prior to his arrest. Officials could not immediately be reached for further information.

Authorities allege that Marsh hit an officer with a table while he was being interrogated and threatened to kill other officers and their families. Man arrested in Chico for allegedly planning a mass shooting
