Georgia man questioned after threatening Atlanta gay bars: ‘The next Orlando’
A Georgia man has been questioned by authorities after making threats on social media to make two Atlanta gay bars “the next Orlando,” the Georgia Voice reports.
Police are investigating the threats, made on Twitter. According to the Voice, the man who made the threats is gay and mentioned the clubs TEN and Blake’s.
“TEN or Blake’s could be the next Orlando. You think I am the type to be the next ‘shooter’? Keep hating me then…” he wrote.
His account is currently either deleted or suspended — but not before Atlanta’s LGBT community shared his messages widely.
Atlanta police, the FBI and Homeland Security questioned Edgerton but have not charged him, the Voice reports. His Twitter bio reportedly read, “I will be your the last person you see.”
He also tweeted, “You are all dead to me.”
