JBS employee arrested following shooting threat
WORTHINGTON — A JBS employee was arrested last week following reports from two coworkers that he had threatened to bring a gun to work and shoot people.
Ka Wah, 27, of Fulda was identified in two separate statements as the person who had made the threats. The criminal complaint alleges that Wah talked about shooting people at JBS and made gestures that indicated their deaths.
The employees who reported their concerns about Wah told law enforcement they "thought he was going to come back and shoot." They said in addition to talking about bringing a gun, Wah had also "mentioned that he would be using a long weapon and kill some people" while brandishing a knife.
The complaint also reports that Wah wrote the number "200" on a table while making these threats.
Wah was released on conditional bail. If convicted of threats of violence with intent to terrorize, he faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both.
