KERRVILLE, Texas— A man has been arrested in Texas, accused of plotting to carry out a mass shooting at a Walmart.

The Kerr County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release Sunday that the 28-year-old man is charged with making a terroristic threat.

Investigators say they intercepted a message from the suspect on Thursday indicating he was “preparing to proceed with a mass shooting,” and that the threat included Walmart. The man was arrested Friday.
