UPDATE – Ohio Teen Wanted In Connection With Swatting Incidents

UPDATE – Brayden Grace was located in Columbus and arrested.

(ONN) – A teenager with ties to Columbus is wanted by the FBI in connection with swatting incidents.

That’s when a person makes a false threat like a shooting or a bomb threat to get law enforcement to respond.

18-year-old Brayden Grace is said to have been part of an online group called Purgatory that would do that.

One of their targets was an Ohio casino.

Grace has ties to the Columbus area.

Retired FBI special agent Harry Trombitas says these are extremely serious crimes.
