A St.Louis man who threatened to shoot and kill as many attendants at a Pride event is charged with making a terrorist threat.
Fox News reports Edward Terry,49, was charged Tuesday after telling organizers of Pride Fest about the threat and then turning the gun on himself. Vice President Marty Zuniga says the organization takes all threats seriously and is currently working with law enforcement on the investigation.
Terry created a fake email and sent the organization detailing his plans stating that he would bring his guns to Pride Fest and “kill every gay person I can before I kill my self.”
