Virginia man threatens to shoot senators
He threatened to shoot at least two senators.
Kyler Schmitz is accused of tweeting the menacing remarks after the mass shooting in Orlando, Fla., earlier this month, NBC4 in Washington, D.C. reported on Monday.
U.S. Capitol Police said Monday in a court filing Schmitz intended to make a “direct threat” to the lawmakers involved.
NBC4 reported that Schmitz allegedly threatened to shoot Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) in a message directed at Blunt’s official Twitter account.
Schmitz allegedly threatened groups of congressional members in other tweets, vowing “I can’t wait to shoot you in the face one by one.”
