The exact details of when and where Marsh allegedly planned to carry out the attack were not shared by police.
The news of the man's arrest come just a few days short of the five-year anniversary of the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.
On October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock open fired into a crowd of more than 20,000 people who were attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival.
Paddock fired more than 1,000 bullets from his 32nd-floor room in the Mandalay Bay Hotel, killing 60 people and injuring more than 850.
Once cops surrounded Paddock's room, he ultimately shot himself in the head.
It's unclear if Marsh was attempting to recreate the events of the Las Vegas shooting on the five year anniversary.
