A man was so engaged over the Patriot’s signing Antonio Brown, that he threatened to “shoot up” the Patriots Gillette Stadium.
The Rhode Island man took to Facebook, where he made a post expressing his disgust at the signing, and said he would pull a “white boy school shooting” at Gillette Stadium, and “shoot random people.”

Tobias Gray was arrested on several charges including terroristic threats.
A Rhode Island man faces a charge of threatening Gillette Stadium before the New England Patriots’ regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Tobias Gray, 44, of East Providence, appeared in a Rhode Island court on Monday, wearing a New York Giants jersey, on a fugitive from justice charge and charges related to an unrelated domestic assault charge in East Providence.
He did not enter a plea.
He agreed to waive extradition to Massachusetts, where he is wanted by Foxborough police in connection with charges of threatening to commit a crime and uttering a terroristic threat.
His attorney, Stefanie DiMaio Larivee, said her client apparently made a Facebook post expressing his displeasure at reports that the Patriots signed receiver Antonio Brown. She said Gray took down the post and meant no harm.
According to court documents, the post said, in part, “Since the Patriots signed Antonio Brown I’m going to pull a white boys school shooting at Foxboro (sic)”.
Foxborough police had no immediate comment. [WCVB]
