Miami cops looking for man who threatened to shoot up synagogue

Police are calling on the public in the Miami-Dade area to help locate a man who threatened to shoot up a local synagogue.

Miami-Dade Police identify the man as Steven H. Brooks. A flyer distributed by police asking the public for information about his whereabouts says he “made verbal threats to shoot with an Uzi and kill everyone at the Beit David Highland Lakes Shul Synagogue.”

He last made a threat on August 14 and has been warned twice about trespassing near the synagogue.

The poster also says that “Subject Brooks stated that he only has six months to live and does not care if he gets arrested.”

The poster stresses that “no probable cause exists” for his arrest.

Despite the fact that he has not been charged with a crime, police are concerned enough to alert the community and nearby synagogues, WSVN Channel 7 news reported.
