U.S. Marshals are searching for a Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened to kill President Trump and other government officials.

U.S. Marshals are conducting a manhunt to find Shawn Christy, 26, who law enforcement officials say is considered to be “armed and dangerous,” WNEP reports.

Christy allegedly threatened to “put a bullet” in Trump’s head in a now-deleted social media post.

This is not the first time Christy had been accused of making threats against government officials. A judge sentenced Christy and his father to probation in 2012 for threatening former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her attorney.

Police are urging the public to call 911 or (484) 358-1974 to contact U.S. Marshals in the area if they have information about Christy or his whereabouts. Authorities are offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
