SALEM, Ore. — A Lebanon man was arrested by Oregon State Police after the Oregon Lottery Headquarters office in Salem received a credible threat of a shooting Tuesday morning.
A suspect, 42-year-old Jason David Ouellette, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with the threat. He was booked into the Marion County Jail for menacing, but was released Tuesday night because of overcrowding, the Marion County Sheriff's Office confirmed.
At about 9 a.m. Tuesday, the lottery office received an email that contained an imminent threat to shoot and kill people at the office. The threat was forwarded to authorities, and detectives from OSP Gaming Enforcement and Major Crimes began an investigation.
