Man Arrested After Threatening Mass Shooting For Jaguars-Steelers Game

A man has been arrested after threatening a mass killing during today’s Jaguars-Steelers game.


Yuttana Choochongkol, a 30-year-old man living in San Antonio, sent threats to kill himself, players and fans to a Pittsburgh television station and to the Steelers’ stadium director of security, according to San Antonio’s KSAT. He has been arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat to the public.

Choochongkol sent identical threats, under the same username, to the television station and to the stadium:

“This Sunday’s playoff game in Pittsburgh is going to be like no other. Why? Because it’s going to be my last day on this pathetic planet. So why not take some innocent lives with me? The Steelers game will be packed, and that’s when I plan on killing Steelers football players and fans before taking my own pitiful life. After all, what does a person that is going to commit suicide have to lose? Absolutely nothing. So why not take out some million dollar Steelers players before me? Sounds like a good idea. Hahahahahah”

Both threats were sent from the same IP address, which was traced to a clinical trial company in San Antonio where Choochongkol has participated in more than two dozen medical trials over the past several years.
