A Mississippi man was arrested late last week after police say he made posts on social media threatening to copy a recent deadly shooting spree in Memphis.

Greenville, Mississippi, police, working with the FBI, U.S. Marshals and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office worked the case after receiving word that a man had posted on Facebook that he would mimic the crime spree that gripped the city of Memphis a week ago.

In the Memphis incidents, police say Ezekiel Kelly drove all over the city shooting people indiscriminately and sometimes broadcasting his crimes live on social media.
