An alleged gun-wielding Cottage Grove man threatened to kill himself and his wife in front of their young son.

“There is going to be a massacre here,” Matthew S. Snyder, 39, warned his wife, according to criminal charges filed against him.

Washington County prosecutors charged Snyder with second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and with terroristic threats, both felonies, following a March 3 incident at his home in the 8000 block of Jergen Avenue.
