Law enforcement officers are on the lookout for a man who has been suspected of threatening the life of President Donald Trump, stating that he was planning to shoot him.
Shawn Richard Christy of Pennsylvania was last spotted in the Cumberland, Maryland area on Sunday night, driving a stolen vehicle.
Clearly, this man has some issues, so it seems his threat against the life of the president is pretty darn serious.
The US Marshals Service is offering $20,000 for information leading to Christy’s arrest. Christy has been wanted on a June 19 federal warrant, accused of posting threats on Facebook against the President and Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.
According to officials, Christy posted, “Keep it up Morganelli, I promise I’ll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump.”Trending:
Christy is a 27-year-old white man who stands at 5 feet 10 inches and weighs about 160 pounds, according to a flyer released by the FBI. He has short dark blond hair, a large tattoo on his right upper arm of a “pointed cross and barbed wire,” and speaks with a distinct lisp.
Kentucky State Police said that upon reviewing surveillance footage it appears on Aug. 9 Christy stole a green 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a black hood from the residence of Timothy Gilliam. Gilliam is the brother of Dakota Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient and former husband of Bristol Palin.Advertisement - story continues below
Christy could be driving another stolen vehicle at this point, according to authorities.
Christy is also wanted on Pennsylvania state warrants for “burglary, probation violation, and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case,” according to the marshals, and threatened to use “full lethal force on any law enforcement officer that tries to detain me.”
The FBI, US Secret Service and US Marshals Service are seeking the public’s assistance in locating Christy, who is armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Officials ask anyone with information regarding Christy’s whereabouts call the US Marshals at 1-877-WANTED-2 (1-877-926-8332).
Whether or not the threat against Trump is legitimate, this fellow is a very real danger to folks, which highlights the necessity of making sure the guy gets caught and brought to justice.
Hopefully the FBI and Secret Service are successful in apprehending Christy before he hurts someone or himself.
