The 18-year old son of a man charged for storming the Capitol building had warned the FBI weeks before the deadly event, The New York Times reported.

Guy Reffitt, Texan, an alleged member of a Texan far-right militia was arrested for storming the Capitol and threatening his children to shoot if they snitched. (Read it here.) His son Jack Reffitt told The Times, "He would always tell me that he's going to do something big. I assumed he was going to do something big, and I didn't know what."

So far having 179 people arrested, the deadly storming of the restricted building left 5 dead.

Investigators stated that in Guy Reffitt's house, they found an AR-15 weapon and a pistol and that he informed them that he had brought the pistol with him to the Capitol but disassembled it in Washington, DC to comply with the laws.
