Rockland man pleads guilty to terrorizing after saying voices told him to shoot up school

ROCKLAND, Maine (WABI) - A man from Rockland has pleaded guilty to terrorizing, after admitting to police that voices in his head told him to shoot up a school.

The Kennebec Journal reports 62-year-old Brandon Luzzi was given a six month deferred sentence.

If he continues mental health treatment in that time, the charged will be dropped all together.

Luzzi's threat in May prompted the lockdown of eight schools in five towns.

Police say they seized eight guns from Luzzi's home.

We're told an out-of-state friend tipped police off to the threat.

Luzzi's case was set to go to trial Wednesday but a plea agreement was reached instead.
