Officials report that a man who was killed in an FBI raid in Utah made online threats against Biden.

Sources claim that a man who made threats against Biden was shot dead during an FBI raid in Utah.

According to CBS News, the FBI confirmed that a man was shot and killed during an early Wednesday morning FBI raid in Utah. The incident occurred at 2:30 pm local time while special agents were serving arrest and search warrants at someone’s home in Provo.

The man is said to have made online threats against President Biden and a number of others, including Bien’s family members and former President Obama.

CBS News obtained video footage from neighbors that appeared to show flashbangs during the raid. A neighbor had reported hearing six gunshots and the man’s body being brought down on the street.

CBS News obtained a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Utah that details graphic threats collected during an FBI investigation of several public officials. Craig Deleeuw Robertson, the suspect, was charged with three federal counts, including threats against President Obama. The man who was killed has not been confirmed by authorities as the man named in his complaint.

The complaint revealed that online posts indicated an intention to kill Mr. Biden. Robertson allegedly wrote on a post dating back to August 6: “I hear Bidon is coming to Utah” and that he was “cleaning the dust off his M24 sniper.” The report also included pictures of the suspect with snooping handgun and ghillie suit.

Utah was the destination of Mr. Biden’s later visit on Wednesday.

The complaint states that Robertson had been the focus of a five-month FBI investigation for allegations of threats against Attorney General Merrick Garland, New York Attorney general Letitia James, and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, all of whom are involved in criminal or civil cases against former President Donald Trump.

According to the complaint, Robertson stated in a March social media post that he would be traveling to New York to pursue his “dream” of killing Bragg.
