Police Reveal Threat of 'Batman-Style' Shooting in Annapolis
Annapolis police arrested a man they say called the Office of Child Support Enforcement and threatened to kill its employees and himself.
Annapolis police have arrested a man whom they say threatened a “Batman-style" shooting at the city's Office of Child Support Enforcement.
"He said he would bring an AK-47 or other military style weapons to the office to accomplish this," police said in a statement.
James Armstead, 37, of Glen Burnie, reportedly called the child support office on Aug. 7 and made threats to kill employees and himself.
Anne Arundel County Police searched Armstead's home in the 400 block of Glen Mar Road, and Armstead was taken into custody and turned over to the Annapolis Police Department Friday.
Although no weapons were recovered at the home, police said evidence from the search indicated Armstead had inquired about obtaining an AK-47.
Police charged Armstead with threatening to injure a state official and two counts of phone misuse. He is held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on $60,000 bond.
