The FBI, Secret Service, and U.S. Marshals Service are currently searching for a man accused of threatening to assassinate President Trump.

Shawn Richard Christy, 27, from McAdoo, Pa., posted on Facebook, “Keep it up [Northampton County District Attorney John] 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 CNN, Christy was last seen Sunday night driving a stolen vehicle in Cumberland, Md.

Christy is a 27-year-old white man who stands at 5 feet 10 inches and weighs about 160 pounds, according to a flyer released by the FBI. He has short dark blond hair, a large tattoo on his right upper arm of a “pointed cross and barbed wire,” and speaks with a distinct lisp.

Kentucky State Police said that upon reviewing surveillance footage it appears on Aug. 9 Christy stole a green 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a black hood from the residence of Timothy Gilliam. Gilliam is the brother of Dakota Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient and former husband of Bristol Palin.

Christy is also wanted in Pennsylvania for “burglary, probation violation, and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case.” He is believed to be armed and dangerous.
