TORONTO Police say a Hamilton man has been arrested after allegedly making empty threats about carrying out a mass shooting at a Toronto nightclub.
Toronto Police say the Facebook post, which they learned about on Friday, was made “as a hoax.”
They allege the man used a fake profile to make the threats.
Investigators say the man was identified nonetheless, and has been charged with conveying false information with intent to alarm.
The 27-year-old appeared in court on Saturday, and also faces a charge of failing to comply with probation.
