The United States Secret Service is investigating threats made on Twitter against President Donald Trump that may have come from someone in Chandler, Arizona, Chandler Police officials said on Tuesday.
A spokesman for the Chandler Police Dept. said Chandler police contacted the Secret Service after receiving several reports of John Silva (@JohnnyKing663) posting menacing photographs and statements on social media.
Among the posts are references to killing the president and vice president, Mike Pence.
The user's headline photo on Twitter is a picture of someone bearing a close resemblance to Trump who is lying on the ground with a bullet wound to the head and a bloodstained shirt.
