Dad who threatened to shoot up school arrested again

Posted: Updated:
HURST, Texas -

A man who allegedly threatened to go on a shooting spree at his son's elementary school is back in jail for violating a protective order.

According to a police report, 29-year-old Alexius Tavo was arrested in January after he threatened to kill his ex-wife and their 5-year-old son. He also made threats against Donna Park Elementary School in Hurst.

In text messages to his ex-wife he said he would bring a machine gun to the school for "murdering as many ppl as possible. Kids and all."

"idc. Im gonna kill a lot of ppl. Never looking back nd blowing my head off right after," he said. "I can get grenades. Going to trade my 2 handguns for a ak47. This is my only goal now. To hurt you forever."

The report said Tavo was suicidal and possibly bi-polar and depressed. He also has a history of violent assaults and was arrested in July for robbery.

His release from prison over the weekend prompted an extra police presence at the elementary school this week. Other parents said they were concerned about their children's safety.

Tavo was arrested again on Wednesday because, despite being banned from the campus, he was in the car with his ex-wife when she picked up their son.

Police said they are working on additional charges for him because of the high volume of complaints they've received from other parents.
