MALNIUS, NEW YORK — A 20-year-old Jamesville man, Zachary Mullen, has been charged with making a terroristic threat after posting plans of a mass shooting at the Tops supermarket in Manlius on Discord, according to a local news outlet.
Following the March 11 incident, an extreme risk protection order was signed by a judge, allowing authorities to confiscate firearms from Mullen’s residence, according to Syracuse.com.
