A Missouri man has been charged after threatening to shoot students at a local school "in the name of Kyle Rittenhouse."

On Saturday December 4, police in Festus, Missouri were alerted to a disturbing social media post made by 27-year-old Michael Lovelace. "I'm going to shoot Festus high school students in the name of Kyle Rittenhouse," the post read, according to KSDK.

Upon seeing the post, police immediately went to Lovelace's home and arrested him. He was subsequently charged with "Making a Terrorist Threat in the 2nd Degree."

Given the all-too-real threat school shooters pose across the country, the Festus R-6 School District and parents of students were notified of Lovelace's disturbing intentions.

As the New York Post reports, Lovelace, a former Festus High-school student himself, has a history of threatening violence on social media against those close to him, as well as police and a former president.

"No wonder schools get shot," one post read, "the news just proved we can get away with it especially if it’s a ******** like Festus."

Lovelace's apparent desire to carry out a school shooting "in the name of Kyle Rittenhouse" comes just weeks after the 18-year-old was acquitted on all charges for shooting three men, killing two, in self defense at a riot in Kenosha, WI in 2020.

Lovelace is currently being held without bond at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office in Hillsboro, MO.
