WABASH COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) – A man was arrested early Thursday morning after an online message threatening school violence was traced back to him, according to a release from the Wabash County Sheriff’s Department.

Police named the suspect Friday as 36-year-old Matthew Dalton, from Peru, Indiana. He was arrested Thursday and charged with intimidation, a Level 5 felony.

Around 3 a.m., a police department in Illinois contacted Wabash Central Dispatch to warn them of a potential threat of school violence they believed was directed at Wabash County.

The police department had found the threat after it was posted as a comment in a livestream on a social networking service, the release said. The message read “I’m going to go around and shoot every school I see.”

The user who wrote the message had his name, date of birth and pictures of himself on his profile. Wabash police investigated and found Dalton had recently been involved in a child custody case with his partner, and had been served a restraining order.

A school in Wabash County had contacted police on back-to-back days to talk with the suspect about his “displeasure with a child custody issue”, the release said, and Dalton had “an abusive attitude towards school staff.” Dalton was given a “no trespass warning” for the school property after the second encounter.

The morning dispatch was alerted of the threat, police found the suspect at Manchester University, where he was employed by a contracted food service company on campus, police said in the release. Dalton was detained, interviewed and then taken to the Miami County Jail.

The investigation is ongoing.
