(Israel Hayom/JNS) A California man who threatened to carry out a mass shooting at a synagogue was arrested this week, local authorities said.

Ross Anthony Farca, 23, of Concord, Calif., had made repeated threats on his account on Steam, a popular video-game platform. He said that he wanted to imitate the shooter who entered Chabad of Poway in Southern California, killing one woman and injuring three, “except with a Nazi uniform on,” The Mercury News reported. His screen name on Steam was “Adolf Hitler (((6 Million))).”

Farca, 23, was charged with felony criminal threats and gun possession.

In his posts, Farca allegedly “expressed a desire to massacre Jewish people,
livestream it to the Internet, and then murder as many police officers as he could” before they killed or captured him.
