California Hotel Cook Plots Mass Shooting In Hotel, Arrested With Heavy Weapons by Explorers(m): 4:41am On Aug 22
A disgruntled Marriott employee who had an enormous arsenal of weapons stashed at his home was arrested after telling a colleague he planned to carry out a mass shooting at his workplace, authorities have said.

Rodolfo Montoya, of Huntington Beach, California, was allegedly plotting to murder his co-workers and Marriott hotel guests with his cache of high-powered firearms including two assault rifles, a pump-action shotgun, several pistols/handguns and body armour following an undisclosed dispute with his HR department.

But his plan was foiled when the 37-year-old cook let slip his deadly intentions to a colleague who informed their manager.

The manager then called the Long Beach Police Department who raided Montoya's home and seized the stockpile of weapons.

Thousands of rounds of ammunition are pictured following the police raid.

LBPD were alerted to the potential mass shooting by a colleague of Montoya's who said the gunman had revealed his deadly intentions to him following an alleged HR dispute.

Montoya, who worked as a cook for the hotel, allegedly spoke to a fellow employee on Monday about the HR dispute and threatened 'that he was going to shoot up fellow employees and people coming into the hotel.'

'That is terrifying,' said Imran Ahmed, the general manager of the Long Beach Marriott, at 4700 Airport Plaza Drive.

During a news conference today, Luna turned and directly addressed Ahmed and said: 'Sir, you saved many lives, not only of your employees but any customers that may have been at the Marriott when this guy decided to show up and carry out his threat.'


'Multiple firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and tactical gear were seized, including high-capacity magazines and an assault rifle, which are illegal to possess in California,' Long Beach Police officials said in a statement late Wednesday.

Montoya was charged with manufacturing and distributing assault weapons, possession of an assault weapon and making a criminal threat.

He is currently being held on $500,000 bail at the Long Beach City Jail.

'We have seen several tragic incidents that have resulted in many lives lost,' said LBPD Chief of Police Robert G. Luna in a press conference disclosing the arrest.

'The witnesses who came forward and the diligence of our employees involved in this investigation very likely prevented a threat of violence and saved many lives.'





Some 25 people have now been arrested over threats to carry out a mass shooting since the attacks in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, at the start of August.

The FBI has been on high-alert for copycat shooters, it has been reported.

The question is US law permitted an individual to have such massive fire arms at home? Is he going for Hunter exploit?

Thank God the witness didn't call it an empty threat and just let go.

This is a wake up call to us all, while we can't take people seriously every time they make threats like this, we also have to be observant. So many people are deranged somewhere upstairs looking for victims.

I think the Montoya guy was trying to mimic the Virginia Beach shooter. Another example of a disgruntled employee-turned-mass-shooter.

Well, only difference here is that the clown couldn't keep his bloody mouth shut. He just made the police's job damn easy. All wanna-be mass-shooters should just be like this dude. Honestly. The cops would just relax and have an easy day at the office.


But how did the hotel end up hiring such a mentally unstable cook though? Did they do a proper check on him- background and otherwise? Like what sort of "cook" goes around amassing such large cache of military-class weapons? I thought cooks only collect pans and spatulas? sad

Indeed, the days are getting stranger...

Did you just say a hotel cook in California have this stash of boneShredder n cartridges??

Damn. Now wonder the lot an ex military would have stashed down his garage and his room if an ordinarily cook could have this for himself alone.

By the way ... I love guns. When I make enough paper, I will get one of those pump-action shotguns or two. Since it's illegal to own a Gloak in Nigeria, I will just have to manage the monstrosity n bulk weight of a daunting shotgun.

I'm not planning to depend on police for my family's protection. Buh I will depend on them for a couple of crocodile skinned body bags for em butter fingers who try to rob me.

What is wrong with this people? Is mass shooting now a religion?

A hotel cook manufacturing guns in his house and a whole country cannot manufacture pensil.
