- Adam Converse
Police say Adam Converse, 25, sent at least 14 messages to Nirenberg via private Facebook messages on October 4-5, the San Antonio Express-News reports. One of the messages demanded money and threatened to stab the mayor.
"It would be nicer to leave you all dead with no hope of life after death ... I want to see people dead," Converse also wrote, according to the reports.
Officers from the San Antonio Police Department's Mental Health Unit went to Converse's home on October 5 and saw him with a machete in his belt loop, according to the daily. When officers moved to detain the suspect he tried to pull the weapon.
In the affidavit cited by the Express-News, an SAPD detective said police officials believed Converse was capable of carrying out violence. He'd recently been placed in “emergency detention," according to the document.
