According to Elkin Police Officers, Michael Steiger, 57, was charged with making threats of terrorist acts, following an incident on April 7.

In a waiting room, Steiger was overheard saying: “I’m starting to get angry, angry to the point of shooting and killing everyone,” according to his criminal complaint.

While being escorted out of the hospital by security, Steiger asked for a propane tank, because he wanted to blow something up, security officers told police.

Steiger has been charged in the past with carrying a loaded handgun in a public place and for manufacturing and selling a weapon without a handle, officers detailed in his complaint.

Steiger is being held in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail with cash-only bail set at $35,000.
