A California man has been arrested after allegedly posting a YouTube clip where he appeared to be practicing a mass shooting.
Steven Homoki was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of possession of an assault weapon, possession of a high capacity magazine and child endangerment.
The 30-year-old allegedly posted videos showing a series of different guns being pointed towards a hotel window in San Diego.
Police received a tip-off on Monday about the clips and stating Homoki had 'gone off the deep end', adding he had a 'plan' in place.
In the videos which appear to be shot on a body camera, a figure can be seen in the hotel room with several assault weapons, magazines and bullets, inducing a hand gun as well as a machine gun.
The suspect was staying at the Sofia Hotel, which sits across the street from the San Diego courthouse, according to his arrest warrant.
In the videos posted on September 17 and 18, the guns appeared to be loaded, then the camera operator seemed to crawl on a bullet-strewn floor, re-load the weapons, then point them at pedestrians from the window.
The video begins with an unloaded hand gun being pointed at the window and fired as someone walks past.
Then an unloaded assault rifle was picked up and fired at another pedestrian, before another gun in the aimed in the same direction.
The figure then walks around the hotel room before crawling around the floor picking up bullets to load them in a magazine, saying: What do you do with this?'
At one point the trigger was pulled on an unloaded rifle aimed at passers-by and a voice said: 'One down, more to go.'
While running around the room with as assault rifle the figure, picked up what appears to be a bottle of spirits and repeatedly said, 'that's not true'.
