A Connecticut high school employee is accused of threatening to go on a killing spree and "execute every white man he gets his hands on," police said.

Bridgeport police said 63-year-old Carl Lemon, an in-school suspension counselor at Harding High School, was arrested Wednesday on charges of second-degree threat and breach of peace.

According to a police report, a teacher reported that Lemon said he "couldn't wait for the Panthers to give the OK and a revolution begins" because he would "execute every white man he gets his hands on."

Police said Lemon also stepped on an American flag and told students: "This is what I think about it."

During an investigation, the assistant principal found an unsigned note in her mailbox that read, "Mr. Lemon talks about shooting whites a lot."

It's unclear whether Lemon has an attorney.
