CHARGES: Minneapolis man threatens to kill former colleagues

- A Minneapolis man is facing felony charges after making threatening posts online and text messages to kill his former colleagues.

Police were called to the U.S. Bank building in Minneapolis on July 25 on a report of a former co-worker making threats.

According to the criminal complaint, 29-year-old Frankie Davis is accused of posting threats on his Facebook that said, “It’s not Terrorist It’s Workplace violence” and in another post “If revenge is sweet and a dish best served cold well, get ready …, the ice cream man is coming.” Davis also sent a text to a former co-worker where he talks about “beheading the boss and throwing his … off the 19th floor.” He then goes on to say in the text, “where’s ISIL when you need them.”

The complaint says Davis made other posts glorifying recent mass shooting suspects, such a Jared Lougher who shot congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and Gavin Long who shot police officers in Baton Rouge.

Witnesses say Davis is dangerous and is seeking revenge. U.S. Bank hired additional police officers to provide security.

Davis was apparently upset after he was let go from his job at the U.S. Bank building.

Davis was booked into Hennepin County jail on Tuesday and is being held on $80,000 bail. He is facing terroristic threat charges and will make his first court appearance Thursday afternoon.
