San Antonio Man Arrested for Threatening to Kill Mayor Ron Nirenberg in Facebook Messages

A San Antonio man has been arrested for sending a string of terroristic threats to Mayor Ron Nirenberg that prompted a staffer to worry the suspect would be "the next mass shooter."

Police say Adam Converse, 25, sent at least 14 messages to Nirenberg via private Facebook messages on October 4-5, the San Antonio Express-News reports. One of the messages demanded money and threatened to stab the mayor.

"It would be nicer to leave you all dead with no hope of life after death ... I want to see people dead," Converse also wrote, according to the reports.

Officers from the San Antonio Police Department's Mental Health Unit went to Converse's home on October 5 and saw him with a machete in his belt loop, according to the daily. When officers moved to detain the suspect he tried to pull the weapon.
