Las Vegas police may have stopped a mass shooting before shots were fired.
 
A grand jury indicted a man accused of making terrorist threats on social media.
 
According to an arrest report, Bryce Cuellar posted "a suspicious and threatening Youtube video." The chilling report read that Cuellar was tired of America and would begin killing soon.
 
The police report indicated that the video showed Cuellar holding up two rifles. According to the report, Cuellar says several times he was going to kill people, and could not wait to use the guns in a manner in which the founding fathers intended.
 
The video was taken down. Metro says they can't show the post.
 
In the report, Cuellar also claimed he was a Christian warrior who wanted to kill gays, lesbians, and Satanists.
         
The report also indicated Cuellar beat his wife after posting the video.
         
Metro confirmed that they and Henderson police arrested Cuellar several times over the past three years.
 
13 Action News tried to speak with a woman connected with Cuellar, but she did not want to talk.
 
When asked if she knew Cuellar, the woman responded, “Wow, you don't even have your facts straight on this."
 
We give her the chance to set the record straight, asking if he made any terrorist threats or if he threatened to kill people.
 
"You don't know what you're talking about," the woman said.
