Local Man Arrested For Threatening to Shoot Up Bozeman Library
This past Saturday, November 30th, a man was arrested after he allegedly threatened to shoot up the Bozeman Public Library. Library staff called police when several children, ages 9 and 16, told them a man was using profane language and was attempting to get them to smell what looked like marijuana in his cigarette pack. The kids also informed library staff that when they refused to smell it, the man threatened to come back and "shoot up the place."
Police eventually located the man in the vicinity of the library, identifying him as Worku John Bradford. According to the police report, this was not Bradford's first issue with the law. Back in September, he was arrested for brandishing a gun at several downtown Bozeman bars. In October, Bradford was arrested for threatening people with a firearm outside the Scoop Bar.
Bradford was also with a companion, Andrew Roberts, at the library, who police discovered at the time was in possession of a loaded weapon, which he had illegally concealed under his coat. Roberts was arrested for the illegally concealed weapon, outstanding warrants, and possession of dangerous drugs.
