(KCEN) -- A San Antonio man has been arrested after police say he threatened to shoot up a mosque and then kill himself.
Christopher Bane allegedly had intentions of going to a mosque in San Antonio and was going to shoot as many people as he could and then shoot himself.
A witness, who police are not identifying, says Bane told him he had a .45 caliber handgun and ammunition.
Officers took the threats seriously.
They notified all three mosques in the city.
Some even pinned Bane's picture on the wall.
It wasn't long before police arrested Bane.
One mosque leader said there are people out there who have warped perceptions about the Islamic faith.
President of the Islamic Academy of San Antonio, Solomon Hamideh, said, "We want to spread the word that we are a peaceful community."
Bane is charged with terroristic threats.
