LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southern California man was arrested and nine guns, including rifles and a shotgun, were seized after threats were posted on Facebook against Los Angeles elementary schools.

Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith said 24-year-old Kyle Bangayan of Pomona was booked into the downtown jail Sunday for investigation of making criminal threats. He remained in jail with bail set at $500,000.

Police and FBI agents went to the east Hollywood home of Bangayan's father after a resident notified authorities about the threatening postings that referred to the deadly school shootings in Connecticut.

Authorities say that when police and FBI agents arrived at the east Hollywood home, the suspect's father gave permission for a search.

The names of the Los Angeles schools and details about the threats were not immediately released.
