Yesterday, San Antonio police revealed that they had arrested a man named Christopher Bane, who had “intentions of going to a mosque in the Medical Center area and was going to shoot as many people as possible.” Bane, according to an unidentified witness, had “a .45 caliber handgun and ammunition.” Three mosques in the San Antonio area were told of the foiled plot; the president of one San Antonio mosque said it was “very bad news for us.” San Antonio police charged Bane with “making terroristic threats.”
