Keller was arrested Sunday after allegedly posting he was angry but glad he had purchased a gun, DPD Capt. Dustin Dassinger said.

"Then apparently he made some type of a statement that 'let's see if North Dakota needs a Columbine and a Virginia Tech, yes we do,'" Dassinger said. "He had removed some of these posts prior to our talking to him."

Dassinger said the posts began around Aug. 8 and while Keller's posts seem threatening in nature, he does not believe Keller intended to act on them.

"I think it was just an utterance, a threat," Dassinger said.

Keller could not be reached for comment.
