Dylan Jarrell was arrested back in October of 2018 for plotting a school shooting against Shelby County High School in Kentucky. Jarrell was arrested after a New Jersey woman received racially charged threats from Jarrell. The woman has biracial children and Jarrell said…
…please you and your monkey children go die.
The woman contacted both local and Kentucky authorities. When the Kentucky State Police pulled up to Jarrell’s home he was leaving his home armed with an AR-15, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a kevlar vest, and the plans to shoot up his former high school.
Before this incident, Jarrell had been investigated for allegedly posting a school shooting threat on Reddit.
The federal indictment said Jarrell sent a statement in that case saying “RIP DYLAN AND ERIC IM ABOUT TO DO IT BETTER THAN CHO.”
Late last year, Jarrell pleaded guilty to the transmission of a threatening communication in interstate commerce; cyberstalking; false statements to the FBI; and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. Last week, Jarrell was sentenced to 10 years behind bars.
Jarrell’s attorney states that his client suffers from depression, anxiety, paranoid schizophrenia, and alcohol abuse. Yet he was obviously able to easily purchase a gun.
Only by the grace of God was a massacre averted.
