One man told Vang's ex-wife and police that Vang said "I have nothing left, only my body. If she wants to take everything, I have nothing left but to die. If I go, I will not go by myself," the criminal complaint said.
He also said, "It is going to be just like Wausau or worse," according to court documents.
Vang allegedly also made these threats to his pastor, telling him, "I just want to do what the guy in Wausau did," court documents said.
Officers found a rifle in Vang's home on June 10, which he is not allowed to have because of a domestic abuse injunction.
