ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say they’ve arrested a Florida man at Orlando International Airport who they believe may have planned to shoot his wife.

WFTV reports police officers in Atlanta tipped Orlando police that 49-year-old William Schultz was possibly planning to shoot his wife. The officer recognized Schultz Tuesday evening from a picture he had seen earlier that day.

An arrest report says Schultz asked the officer about a parking garage and then walked away. The officer ordered him to stop.

Schultz’s wife was traveling out of state and told law enforcement he’d texted her threatening messages, adding that he would be at the airport when she landed. Police said she canceled her flight out of fear. Her daughter called authorities.

He’s charged with aggravated stalking with a firearm. Jail records don’t list a lawyer.\
