A Seattle, Washington-area man was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly making threats on President Obama‘s life, and for pointing a shotgun at a federal agent. When the Secret Service, along with the Federal Way Police Department, went to question 31 year-old Anton Caluori , whom Mediaite has confirmed describes himself in a LinkedIn profile as an “Offshore Banking Entrepreneur,” about threatening emails he allegedly sent to an FBI general email address, authorities say he answered the door holding a shotgun. From WJLA:
A Secret Service agent and a Federal Way police officer went to an apartment in a four-plex at the Panther Ridge Apartments, knocked and announced themselves for about three minutes, then found themselves facing a man armed with a shotgun when the door opened, Schrock said.
“The shotgun was coming up to point in the direction of the agents,” she said. “The two officers were able to close in and take control of the weapon before anyone was harmed.”
The officers also seized a gun in the man’s ankle holster, she said. Because the resident made statements about explosive devices in the apartment, the Federal Way bomb squad was called to evacuate the four-plex and sweep it for explosives, Schrock said.
None was found.
Caluori is due in federal court this afternoon.
