MEDFORD, Ore. (NBC) - Police in Oregon arrested a man on Wednesday that they believed was planning a potentially catastrophic event.
According to officials, 24-year-old Kristopher Clay came to a Medford, Oregon police station lobby asking to speak with an officer. There, he told the officer he was having homicidal thoughts with plans to kill a lot of people.
Clay was taken to a behavioral health facility for evaluation.
An investigation found ammunition, firearms, tactical gear and written materials in various places across the county.
Clay was employed as a custodian at a local high school but a sweep of the building didn't turn up any threats, according to school officials.
Clay was arrested Wednesday and faces numerous charges including attempted murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.
