BROOMFILED, Colo. (CBS4)- There has been a delay in the hearing for a man accused of threatening President Obama and school children in the Denver metro area.

Both prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to allow more time to evaluate the mental status of Mitchell Kusick. He is scheduled to appear in court in May after the psychiatric evaluation.

According to police documents, Kusick, 20, told police he was planning on killing children on Halloween because he was looking for somewhere with a lot of people and he “could have the biggest impact.”

In a meeting with his therapist Corey Candelaria, on Oct. 29, 2012, Kusick allegedly revealed that he had planned to use the gun to kill children at the school on Halloween.

He then allegedly was planning on continuing to shoot and hoped to plan to draw police into a gunfight.

According to the document, Kusick had homicidal fantasies on a daily basis for the past five or six years and he was obsessed with the Columbine shootings, Virginia Tech shootings and the Jessica Ridgeway case.

Kusick also allegedly admitted that he wanted to assassinate President Barack Obama. He said he had been keeping track of his travel schedule, and wanted to go down in history as “the guy who killed Obama.”
