Lollapalooza Staffer Arrested After Fabricating Mass Shooting Threat to Get Out of Work Early: Report –

A Lollapalooza security staffer is currently in jail after allegedly fabricating a mass shooting threat. 

The Chicago Tribune reports the staffer sought to get out of work early and intended to use the threat as cover.

On the second day of the long-running Chicago music festival, 18-year-old Janya B. Williams reportedly sent a message to a colleague from a phone number which read, “Mass shooting at 4pm location Lollapalooza. We have150 targets.” The number was allegedly created via TextNow, a free, internet-based phone service platform which allows users to register real phone numbers.
