A Pennsylvania man hunted by federal authorities for allegedly threatening to “put a bullet…in the head of President Donald J. Trump” is suspected to be on the run in Ohio on Monday after authorities there found an abandoned truck he's believed to have stolen.
Police investigating a crash late Sunday afternoon near Mansfield determined the truck on the side of Interstate-71 was the same one alleged to have been swiped by Shawn Christy from a construction company in Luzerne County, Pa., about 380 miles east, Fox 56 reported.
The 27-year-old from McAdoo has been on the radar of U.S. Marshals, the FBI and the Secret Service after making threats against President Trump, law enforcement and public officials on Facebook in June, according to a federal arrest warrant.
"I promise I'll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump,” Christy allegedly wrote in one post directed at Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.
FBI officials have warned that he is armed and dangerous and has promised to harm law enforcement agents who try to apprehend him.
