AUTHORITIES STILL LOOKING FOR FUGITIVE

 

A manhunt is still underway for a Pennsylvania man accused of making a threat against President Trump and war hero Dakota Meyer of Adair County.
 
Officials issued a federal warrant for 27-year-old Shawn Richard Christy in June after he threatened Pennsylvania District Attorney John Morganelli. In a Facebook post, Christy wrote: "Keep it up Morganelli, I promise I'll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump."
 
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Christy has threatened to use full lethal force on any law enforcement officers that tries to detain him.
 
Last Thursday, a 2012 Toyota Tundra was stolen in Poca, West Virginia. The vehicle was recovered Saturday night in Greensburg, KY. 
 
There are numerous state arrest warrants out for Christy including probation violation and burglary.
 
Christy is a white male, about 5'10 and weighs 160 pounds. Christy has a tattoo of a cross on his upper right arm, short dark blonde hair and a beard. He also speaks with a noticeable lisp and claims to be a survivalist, according to the FBI. 
 
A reward of up to $15,000 is being offered for information that leads to his arrest. The FBI advises that Christy should be considered armed and dangerous, and individuals should not attempt to arrest Christy. 
 
Anyone with information about Christy is asked to call the U.S. Marshals at 877-926-8332, or the FBI at 215-418-4000.
