A Long Island man faces a terroristic threat and weapons charges after allegedly threatening to open fire on a Long Island children's camp being held at a Yeshiva.

The incident happened Monday at about 5:20 at the Yeshiva Ketana of Long island in Inwood.

Nassau County Police say Nicola Pelle, 58, of Inwood made a call to make a complaint about a violation of social distancing at the camp.

While police were on the way, they say Pelle called again and threatened to get a gun and shoot the people at the location if the police didn’t get there.
