The criminal complaint said that Aaron Matthew Masieniec admitted to posting a picture. According to the complaint, the picture showed an assault rifle with a caption that said, 'ready for school my dudes.' He reportedly told police he got the picture off the internet.

Law enforcement got a call on New Year's Day from someone who saw the post. That person then went to the police station to show them the post.

Police Chief Vern Manner said that no specific school was mentioned. However, they did have extra police presence at the schools on Wednesday, for the benefit of kids and staff and parents.

Masieniec is 23-years-old.
