A northeast Ohio man has pleaded not guilty to threatening a Jewish community center in a video police say shows him shooting a rifle. 

Bond is set at 250 thousand dollars for 20-year-old James Reardon Junior. A judge has ordered him to stay away from Jewish churches and organizations if he is released. New Middletown police say he posted a video on social media last month of himself shooting a semiautomatic rifle. The video included the caption: "Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist." Police say they found weapons and anti-Semitic information at his home.
