The FBI on Wednesday shot and killed a man who allegedly threatened President Joe Biden and other prominent Democrats.

Craig Deleeuw Robertson, a resident of Provo, Utah, was killed on Wednesday while agents executed a search warrant on his house for threats he made. He allegedly made a threat on Monday about needing a sniper rifle and camouflage ahead of Biden's visit to the state this week.

The FBI said it is "reviewing an agent-involved shooting which occurred around 6:15 a.m. on Wednesday, August 9, 2023 in Provo, Utah."

The statement added that the incident unfolded when "special agents attempted to serve arrest and search warrants at a residence."

Robertson, described as between 70 and 75 years old, also allegedly threatened Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg, saying he wanted to assassinate him.

Biden is set to arrive in Utah on Wednesday afternoon and will attend a fundraiser, his first trip to the state as president.
