FBI Agents Kill Utah Man Who Threatened To Assassinate Biden

A suspect shot and killed by FBI agents Wednesday in Provo, Utah was connected to alleged threats against President Biden and other officials, Scripps News reports. The FBI says agents were attempting to serve arrest and search warrants when they shot and killed Craig Robertson at around 6:15 a.m., a few hours before the president was set to land in the state. Court documents show Robertson threatened to "inflict bodily harm" on the president during his visit to Utah. In a social media message sent this week, Robertson allegedly wrote, "I hear Biden is coming to Utah" and said he was preparing to get out his camouflage suit and clean "the dust off the M24 sniper rifle."  


In March, Robertson claimed he was heading to New York City to kill Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who was overseeing onee criminal investigation into former President Trump. "I’ll be waiting in the courthouse parking garage with my suppressed Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm to smoke a radical fool prosecutor that should never have been elected," he allegedly posted. The FBI said agents had gone to Robertson's residence Wednesday to serve him warrants when the shooting happened. The bureau did not say what prompted agents to open fire. The case is under review by the Justice Department's Inspection Division. "The FBI takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members seriously," the bureau said.
