Authorities in Cobb County arrested a man who allegedly emailed shooting threats to the CIA, NSA and the county sheriff, mentioning Hillary Clinton and Hamas, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Kenneth Harp, 38, of Kennesaw, is being held at the Cobb County jail after being arrested on Monday. He faces one felony charge of making terroristic threats.
Officials said Harp sent emails threatening a mass shooting directly to officials at the national agencies as well as Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren, the news station reported.
The latest email, on Nov. 17, had the subject line “Mr. Harp Mass Shooting,” according to an arrest warrant.
He allegedly wrote, “I’ll go to jail but you are going to pay for it.”
Deputies said he also made disturbing references to Hamas, “kill bonuses” and Hillary Clinton.
“These were direct. They were direct to people. Not just positions but names,” law enforcement expert Brent Brown told Channel 2. “You don’t make idle threats to public officials. They will come after you and you will go to jail.”
