Threat To Storm Courthouse Prompts Arrest

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2015

A man has been arrested for allegedly threatening to storm the Sedgwick County Courthouse and kill law enforcement officers if a man on trial for murder was found guilty.

Sheriff Jeff Easter said at a news conference Thursday that the comments were part of an exchange on Facebook that discussed entering the courtroom while armed. Authorities say the comments were in reference to the trial of Kyler Carriker.

Carriker was on trial for the 2013 shooting death of Ronald Betts during a marijuana deal. Carriker was found not guilty Thursday afternoon.

Easter said several people reported the online comments to law enforcement and additional security was placed at the courthouse.
