Man threatened to shoot up hotel had arsenal at home

A California hotel cook who was upset over a work-related human resources issue was arrested after he threatened a mass shooting and stored guns and ammunition at his home, police said.

Authorities say Rodolfo Montoya, 37, told a co-worker he was going to shoot up fellow employees and guests at the Long Beach Marriott. The co-worker then told the hotel’s general manager who reported it to police.

Police arrested Montoya on Tuesday at his Huntington Beach home.

Multiple firearms, an assault rifle, tactical gear, dozens of high-capacity magazines and hundreds of bullets were seized from Montoya’s home, police said.
