ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 71-year-old St. Louis County man is charged with unlawful use of a weapon after a Muslim family said he threatened to kill them while they were looking at a rental home.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/1pmq3m4) reports Leonard Debello was charged Monday and held on $15,000 bond.

St. Louis County police say Debello saw a husband, wife and their four children in his neighborhood on Feb. 21 as they were looking at a house.

Prosecutors say Debello drove by the victims and shouted, “You Muslim? All of you should die.” They say Debello went into his house and came out with a gun, which he pointed at the victims and said, “You, your wife and your kids have to die.”

It was unclear if he had obtained an attorney.
