Oklahoma City police have arrested a metro man they say threatened to shoot and kill police officers.
Police say 19-year-old Tavon Railback was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon at the Will Rogers Courts apartments.
Police say Railback recently threatened to shoot and kill police officers via Facebook. A probable cause affidavit shows Railback posted a photo of himself holding a semi-automatic handgun with a caption and emojis that reads “Bust some shotz @ ah Opp Den Watch His Body Fall”
The probable cause affidavit cites the fatal shooting of two New York Police Department officers following a similar post from suspect Ismaaiyl Brinsley.
The arrest warrant was issued for violation of the Oklahoma Anti-Terrorism Act and unauthorized use of a computer to violate state statute.
