SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police arrested a man accused of threatening to kill people at Oregon Lottery headquarters.

Capt. Tim Fox says an email sent to the lottery office in Salem on Tuesday contained an imminent threat to shoot people. Within hours, detectives arrested 42-year-old Jason Ouellette of Lebanon, Oregon.

He was booked into the Marion County Jail on a charge of menacing. It was not immediately known if he has retained an attorney or will be appointed one at his first court appearance.
