Man Who Threatened to Shoot Boss Arrested

Police say a Kendall man pledged "allegiance to Allah'' and vowed to dress like the comic-book villain The Joker and shoot his co-workers.

According to reports, 20-year-old Enrique Dominguez was arrested Friday for aggravated assault.

An arrest report says Miami-Dade Police's Homeland Security Bureau received reports that Dominguez "expressed an intent to become radicalized'' and openly discussed a plot to kill his supervisor.

Dominguez allegedly told a co-worker he wanted to dress up as The Joker and bring a gun to work He also reportedly showed the co-worker execution videos posted online by ISIS.

Police say that on Friday, Dominguez confessed he had bought a shotgun and planned to open fire after his "day of allegiance.''

In court Saturday, Dominguez's attorney Saam Zangeneh called him a "good kid'' and downplayed the threats.
