A high school in Connecticut was on lockdown Wednesday after a school employee who wanted to “execute every white man” threatened to go on a rampage killing, police said.

A suspect identified as Carl Lemon, 63, a school suspension coordinator at Harding High School in Bridgeport, was charged with second-degree threatening and breach of peace, the Connecticut Post reported. He was released on $5,000 bond.

Officers responded to the school after a report of a possible threatening situation. Dane Brown, the school, the principal, said the man made threatening comments to a teacher.

The police claim Lemon said that he hates white people and could not wait “for the panthers to give the OK and a revolution starts, because he performs every white man he gets his hands on.”

The employee of the school, also allegedly stomped on an American flag and told the students in the class that “This is what I think about it.”

During the police investigation, Principal Brown said she found an anonymous note in her mailbox regarding Lemon’s disturbing behavior.

“Mr. Lemon talks about the shooting of whites! He looks radical things during the lesson. I’m afraid that he’s going to do … he is crazy,” the note reportedly read.

Lemon previously faced with the cost of creating a public disturbance, disorderly conduct and harassment. The charges were later withdrawn.
