Omaha Police learned about an on-line post Monday that stated “Omaha, Nebraska – Watch the news at 9 am. Tomorrow. Big Things.” Detectives say the threat was non-specific but did raise concerns.
Homicide detectives were able to locate the person who made the post, 27-year-old Joshua Gustafson, and officials determined the threat was not viable and was not in possession of guns or explosives. However, detectives did determine Gustafson is potentially a threat to himself and others and he was placed into protective emergency custody.
