INDIANAPOLIS: Police Charge Man With Threatening To “Shoot Everyone” At Local Gay Bar “Like In Orlando”

The Indy Channel reports:

Before walking into Downtown Olly’s bar Sunday night, Indiana State Police say Brandon Savage called them, saying he was “getting ready to go into a gay bar and shoot everyone. It’s going to be like Orlando.”

According to a probable cause affidavit, Savage told police he was armed with a Glock, a Derringer and a machete. He also reportedly told them that “the police had better hurry.”

On Wednesday, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office said it had filed new charges of intimidation and harassment against Savage – on top of one count of attempted robbery he was already facing for the incident.

The charges, filed along with an updated affidavit, allege that shortly after Savage placed his call to state police, he walked into Olly’s Bar on Illinois Street downtown and told an employee, “I’m going to hold all of you hostage.”

On his Facebook page, Savage claims to be a corrections officer and military veteran. Neither claim is true. (Tipped by JMG reader Michael)
