OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Police in Oklahoma say a man has been arrested after threatening shootings in Oklahoma City and San Antonio similar to the recent deadly assault in Las Vegas.

Police say 39-year-old Roderick Lamar Robinson was arrested Tuesday in the Oklahoma City suburb of Warr Acres.

Jail records show Robinson is being held Wednesday on a terroristic hoax complaint. No attorney is listed to speak on his behalf.

Oklahoma City police Capt. Bo Mathews says several people sent messages to police alerting them that Robinson had posted on Facebook that he would kill people in those cities in a manner similar to Sunday's shooting in Las Vegas that left at least 59 dead.

A police spokesman hasn't returned a phone call seeking comment.

A page that appears to be Robinson's contains no such threats on Wednesday.
