A Lombard man was arrested after he allegedly threatened to do a “Columbine type” shooting at the DuPage County Courthouse.
Daniel P. McDade, 31,was charged with two felonies: one count of threatening a public official and one count of disorderly conduct.
McDade was out on bail for a DUI charge, and on March 31, was notified to appear at the DuPage County Courthouse on April 4 for a drug test. The drug test was part of his bail agreement.
After he was notified, he apparently began posting several threatening and disturbing messages on Facebook. In multiple messages, McDade allegedly stated that on April 4 he would shoot several people including children, police and public officials in a “Columbine” type shooting at the courthouse, authorities said.
During DuPage County’s investigation, McDade was located in Denver, Colorado, and was taken into custody by the Denver Police Department. He is currently being held in the Denver County Jail and is awaiting extradition back to DuPage County.
