State of Nevada v. Sanchez, Michael
Las Vegas, NV

Michael Sanchez allegedly threatened to "shoot up" a local synagogue while he believed "the Jews and police were after him" was arrested by police in January 2023. Sanchez is being held in jail on $20,000 bond on a charge of making threats or conveying false information concerning acts of terrorism. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department report states the following: On Jan. 29 a Rabbi at the Chabad of Southern Nevada Synagogue contacted the FBI about a threat he received on the phone "from a subject indicating they were going to come shoot the synagogue." "Michael accused him and the people that attend his church of being child molesters, and killers... something in between the lines that they do not deserve to live," an arrest report said. Sanchez then brought up the shooting which happened at a synagogue in Poway, CA, where one woman died and three others including an 8-year-old were injured.
