DENVER (AP) — A judge will hear arguments about whether to grant bail to a man accused of telling his therapist that he wanted to shoot children and kill President Barack Obama.

Mitchell Kenneth Kusick of Westminster is scheduled to appear in federal court Monday for a detention hearing and preliminary hearing.

Court records say Kusick made comments about wanting to kill people to his therapist Oct. 29. The therapist called police and told his family to take him to a hospital, where Kusick was placed on a mental health hold. He is now in federal custody on suspicion of threats against a president.

Authorities say Kusick obtained a gun and tried to buy ammunition at a Walmart but the store refused to sell it to him.
