A Front Range man who told investigators he is a student at CMU was arrested after accusations that he threatened to kill President Obama, shoot children and kill people on Halloween.

Mitchell Kenneth Kusick, of Westminster is being held on a federal charge of threats against a president.

Jefferson County court records show he told his therapist about wanting to shoot students at a trick-or-treat event at Standley Lake High School.

Federal court records said Kusick took a shotgun from his aunt's house, tried to buy ammunition then told his therapist about his plan.

The therapist called police, and Kusick went to a hospital, where he was placed on a mental health hold.
