Seth Montes made church shooting threat in Pulse video: Cops

An 18-year-old Florida man is accused of threatening to shoot up his church in comments posted on YouTube videos about the Pulse Nightclub massacre and the mass shooting at Club Q.

Seth Montes is facing a charge of written threats to kill and remains at the Volusia County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

The FBI called the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office after it received information about a threat made online. Law enforcement tracked the IP address to a home in DeLand. The comments were made on YouTube videos of news broadcasts from the 2016 Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, and the 2022 massacre at Club Q in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Montes allegedly threatened to carry out similar acts at his church.

“I’m going to get on the news next week and go down as the biggest church shooter on record against homophobic Christians,” he wrote, according to a probable cause arrest affidavit reviewed by Law&Crime.
