Lockport man admits to threatening to kill Pres. Obama

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A 19-year-old from Lockport is looking at up to five years in jail after admitting he threatened to kill President Barack Obama.

Back in September, Jared Brown called Lockport Police and said that he would kill the President. In a later interview with Secret Service agents, Brown was asked what he would do if Obama was in the room. Authorities said his response was that he would shoot the President, referring to him with a racist slur.
