A federal grand jury has indicted two militia members on charges that they planned to shoot at Border Patrol agents and undocumented individuals in an effort to “start a war” at the southern border.
In a 44-count indictment, Bryan Perry of Clarksville, Tennessee, and Jonathan O’Dell of Warsaw, Missouri, are accused of plotting to go to Texas and shoot at illegal immigrants who were attempting to cross the border between the United States and Mexico.
Law enforcement officials support the Democratic governor’s reelection alongside ‘coal country’ in shunning Republicans.
The couple allegedly intended to kill any Border Patrol officials who tried to stop them, according to the indictment, which was returned on May 30. They are accused in the indictment of seven counts of attempting to kill FBI agents and assault with a deadly weapon, three counts of actually attacking FBI agents, and 14 counts of using a gun to commit a violent felony.
