Truck driver arrested after allegedly threatening to commit church mass shooting: FBI

A truck driver was arrested after he allegedly threatened to shoot up a church in Memphis, kill people on the street, and kill himself, according to new criminal complaint.

Thomas McVicker, 38, allegedly made “credible threats to conduct a mass shooting and suicide” to a friend, according to the complaint filed last Friday in the Southern District of Alabama.

Of the threats he made, he allegedly said he was going to shoot up a Tennessee church and “take his knife and slit the pastor’s throat."

McVicker's alleged comments would be some of the latest in a string of mass shooting threats in recent weeks. Nearly 1,000 miles away, in Volusia County, Florida, a 15-year-old boy was arrested the same day as McVicker for allegedly making unrelated threats to shoot up his school.
