Following a shooting rampage that left four dead in Memphis last week, Greenville police have arrested a 28-year-old man for making a similar threat via social media.
According to officials, Jeremy Gordon sent the post on Friday night. Greenville Police in collaboration with the FBI, U.S. Marshals, and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department worked quickly to make an arrest.
“Late Friday, Gordon posted on his personal Facebook page of carrying out acts of terrorism similar to that of Memphis’ Ezekiel Kelly this past week,” a release from GPD said. “A search for Gordon at a relative home came up empty, but after a brief phone call, Gordon turned himself into the police department.”
As of Saturday, Gordon had been transported to a federal holding facility.
