A man in Kissimmee, Florida is now in jail after being accused of trying to kill sex offenders.
The man has been identified as 50-year-old Jorge Porto-Sierra. He has been charged with four counts of attempted premeditated murder.
Osceola County detectives say Porto-Sierra confessed to deputies that he tried to kill multiple people at the Friendly Village Inn.
Porto-Sierra said he went to the motel to “barbecue all the child molesters on fire and kill them.”
WESH 2 reported that two of the four victims are convicted sexual offenders.
Witnesses told deputies that they saw Porto-Sierra making several threats, screaming, “I’m going to kill you, child molester!” and began throwing gasoline on the front doors of the victims. No fire was started.
When asked by deputies why he did not carry out his threats, Porto-Sierra responded, “You got here too soon.”
Porto-Sierra’s case is still under investigation as his exact motivates are still unclear.
He remains behind bars at the Osceola County Jail and is being held on no bond.
