NORWALK, Conn. (WTIC) -- Connecticut State Police said they've arrested a man who allegedly made a shooting threat at a Norwalk DMV Thursday.

Connecticut State Police said they've arrested Gregory Plaia, 55, after a DMV employee said Plaia made a statement saying "Today seems like a good day to shoot to kill."

The DMV employee went on to say that Plaia suggested he would come back another time. Police said Plaia was armed but did not display it inside the DMV.

State police said they've arrested and charged Plaia with breach of peace in the second degree and threatening in the second degree.

"Who says that? Today’s a good day to shoot to kill and maybe I’ll come back another day. That’s somewhat as a normal person looking from the outside certainly seems unstable to the average person. Obviously he deserved a second look by law enforcement," added Brian Foley of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.
