FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California man has been arrested on suspicion of making threatening comments on the Internet in connection with the Connecticut school shootings.

Fairfield Police Sgt. Kevin Carella says Sergio Cabada praised the school attack on his Facebook page and said he had thought of committing similar acts. He was arrested at his home on Monday and booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of making felony terrorist threats.

It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

Carella says officers confiscated four rifles at Cabada's home in Suisun City.

It's the second time in three days that a California resident has been arrested on suspicion of making threats on Facebook stemming from the Connecticut shootings.

Prosecutors have declined to file charges against the other person — a Southern California man who was arrested on Sunday.
