A man has been arrested after he threatened to kill almost 100 people at a gay club in Ohio. 

Me’Shach Israel-Miller, 27, was talking to Montrese Hollar, who performs in drag as Dashe Desmond Rose, on dating app Grindr when he made the shocking claims. 

During their conversation, Miller threatened to murder "85 faggots" at their local gay venue. 

Completely stunned by the claims, Rose took screenshots of the conversation and immediately reported it to the police.

"His response… was completely off the wall," Hollar told NBC News. 

"When he mentioned 85 [people] in my community—I’ve been an activist in my community since I was a teenager, and I just couldn’t let that go by"

Police were reportedly able to track down Miller using Grindr, and they charged him with inducing panic and aggravated menacing.
