Jilted Girlfriend Threatens To Shoot Up Seattle Pacific University Unless Ex Resumes Relationship
A Washington woman threatened a second mass shooting at Seattle Pacific University after a student there broke up with her, according to King County prosecutors.
[su_center_ad]KOMO News reports that Samantha Otis, now charged with cyberstalking, is alleged to have threatened “a repeat” of the June 5 shooting at SPU in an Oct. 31 message to her ex-boyfriend.
“I finally understand why the school shooters do it,” the 20-year-old is alleged to have said.
SPU went in lockdown mode
Senior Deputy Prosecutor David Ryan described the threats as “a frightening reminder to the entire student and staff community of the campus shooting” four months before.
The 20-year-old started sending threatening message to her ex-boyfriend on Oct. 30th when he didn’t respond to a text message, police say.
“Who do I have to kill to get you to answer?” Otis said in one message.
“Maybe a loaded gun to your head would make you listen,” she allegedly wrote in another message.
Otis went a step further and threatened to shoot students at SPU unless her ex agreed to continue their relationship, police say.
According to KOMO, she allegedly said she was parked across from the SPU gym and prepared for a shooting.
Her ex-boyfriend called 911 and reported what took place.
SPU was on locked down until police arrested Otis. There were no details offered as to whether Otis was in possession of a gun or not. [su_csky_ad]
