An Ohio man has been arrested and charged after saying that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “should be shot.”
Timothy J. Ireland, 41, faces a counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm, being a fugitive in possession of a firearm, and making interstate threats. The charges come after U.S. Capitol Police received word of a Facebook threat made by Ireland in July.
FBI agents reportedly raided Ireland’s home on Thursday, where they found several rounds of illegal ammunition. Ireland also has outstanding warrants for felony failure to appear in court in Florida and a misdemeanor failure to appear related to a marijuana possession charge in Georgia.
