BRADFORD, Pa. (AP) - A former subcontractor has been jailed on charges that he threatened to "blow up" the northwestern Pennsylvania refining firm where he had been fired.
Police tell the Bradford Era that 39-year-old John Rose, of Bradford, had been fired Friday from American Refining Group and returned to the business Monday trying to force his way in the front door by kicking it and throwing rocks through the glass.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Rose who remained in the McKean County Jail on Tuesday, on terroristic threat and other charges.
Police say they chased Rose after he drove away from the company Monday afternoon, and that he shouted at police to shoot him before eventually surrendering.
Police say Rose ranted and cried about the Connecticut school shootings as he was laying on the ground handcuffed.
