Man arrested for allegedly threatening child support office with ‘Batman’ style shooting
James Armstead (Annapolis Police Department)
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -
Police arrested a man they say threatened to kill employees of a Maryland child support enforcement office in ‘Batman' style shooting.
Officers say 37-year-old James Armstead made several phone calls to the Anne Arundel County Office of Child Support Enforcement earlier this month.
In those calls, Armstead allegedly made threats to kill employees and himself. He is also said to have made reference to the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting and said he would use military style weapons to do a "Batman" style shooting at their office.
Armstead was arrested Friday without incident. Although no weapons were recovered at his home, evidence was recovered which indicated Armstead was making inquiries on how to obtain an AK-47.
Armstead is currently being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on $60,000 bond.
